Observed On the Property

We often record bird sightings at the Museum.

Some records are informal, like our notes at the Viewing Window (see below for recent birding entries from our blog).

Some records are for monitoring purposes and we record those in eBird, one of many citizen science projects. That’s where records from our monthly bird monitoring walks, the Early Birder walks, Nestwatch and Great Backyard Bird Count, or when something particularly unusual gets reported.

We also participate additional not-just-birds citizen science projects.

Through the Window: May 2022

Still limiting feeding, although this month we saw so many birds that one might hardly have thought we were doing this! (Also, see below for why.) We also noticed that at certain times of the day, the light hit the front door just right (or perhaps, just wrongly) to apparently encourage bird collisions. We have …

Through the Window: April 2022

Despite changing from regular feeding to a restricted type and amount (see below for why), we still enjoying observing birds through our window. Something about just sitting, watching, maybe taking notes or doing Feederwatch…  this helped us get through a wicked bad mud season and a few April snowfalls.  And as we post this, we’re …
