We participate in Feederwatch, and are grateful for our volunteers M & M who do a weekly-ish session to help us with this.  They record birds on Feederwatch sheets and in eBird for us. Want to see what they and others have spotted, in addition to our list above? Here’s the link for all January observations here:

(Bold items in this list are species not recorded in December 2023.)

Care to look for birds with us? Register for one of our upcoming events or schedule a visit to the Museum. See you soon!

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 covering that helps hide watchers from the birds. We have chairs and binoculars to try, a white board, and many identification guides. Outdoors, several feeders are attached on a single, 8′ steel pole. A small pond, flowers and water plants, shrubs and trees add cover and (seasonally) other food choices . You can sometimes see what we see via our webcam.
