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.
A little bit of feeding brought some nice sightings (Through the Window, September 2022)
Of note this month was our Community Day and a sighting of a sandpiper up at our pond. That’s not too uncommon, although it doesn’t always get noted on the Viewing Window list! August Bird List
A nice month! We were busy with camp groups, some new Nestlings programs, our wonderful annual butterfly walk, a carving class, and the final touches on our July Chip Notes newsletter. And with all that, we still time to do a little sedentary birding! Though we are a bit sparse on birds at the feeders …
Even though we’ve cut back on our feeding, we have still been able to enjoy spotting birds through our windows (and doors) at the Museum.
