Project Feederwatch started November 10th! We enjoy having our lunch while “standing watch”. When do you take your data?
Of course some Red and Gray squirrels appeared quite pleased to hoover up some of our corn and black oil seed from the ground.
The “Through the Window” series is an informal record of observations made by staff, volunteers, and visitors. Anyone at the Museum may add to this list. Observations are usually through our viewing window: a large window with a film to make it more difficult for birds to see the watchers. We have chairs and binoculars to try there, a white board, and many identification guides. Outdoors, several feeders are attached on a single, bear-resistant pole. A small pond, flowers and water plants, shrubs and trees add cover and other food choices. You can sometimes see what we see via our webcam.
