Join the thousands of FeederWatchers across North America who count the birds at their feeders from November through early April. All participants receive the project’s annual summary publication, Winter Bird Highlights, and the Cornell Lab's quarterly newsletter, Living Bird News. FeederWatch makes a great gift too! (See gift instructions below.)

We are taking sign-ups for the 2014-2015 FeederWatch season. Kits are shipped between October and February.

Canadians, please sign up for Project FeederWatch through Bird Studies Canada.

Project FeederWatch is supported by an annual participation fee of $15 ($12 for Cornell Lab of Ornithology members).

Project FeederWatch, no kit -- for renewing participants only

This option is only available for renewing participants who would like to help us save resources. With this option you will receive no kit by mail or online and no notification of your ID number. If you do not know your ID number, select the kit.
Give FeederWatch to a friend or relative. All kits must be shipped directly to the recipient in order for our system to assign the gift recipient their own ID number. Just fill in the gift recipient’s name and address in the “ship to” section of the check-out page. If you order during the FeederWatch season, we will include a postcard in their kit telling them the kit is from you. If you order in the off-season, we will mail your gift recipient a postcard to notify them that you have signed them up and that a kit will be coming in the fall. You may also download and print a gift recipient notification certificate to give to them yourself: just click this link. Please note: To assure that your order is processed properly, please only order one kit per transaction. If you would like to order kits for additional people and want to avoid multiple transactions, please call us toll free at 866-989-2473 and order over the phone.

If you need to submit data on paper forms or are not comfortable signing up online, please sign up by phone or mail:
