I don’t know much about birds so I thought this would be a great way for me to learn about them while admiring nature around me. “Bird counts help keep track of what is happening in your own backyard and help scientists track long term trends in bird distribution and abundance.” FeederWatch data are extremely helpful for detecting and explaining changes in the winter ranges of many species.
