Project Feeder Watch is a winter survey of backyard birds. From November through early April, participants periodically count birds at their backyard feeders. "FeederWatch data help scientists track broad scale movements of winter bird populations and long-term trends in bird distribution and abundance." There is still time to sign up for the 2009/2010 season, which ends on April 9. For $15 you'll get a Research Kit with instructions, bird identification poster, bird feeding guide, and tally sheet.
