Citizen science is a great way to involve children and adults in discovery and contribute to scientific research and conservation. Project FeederWatch through Cornell University is a great way to get involved in citizen science. You can learn more at the Project FeederWatch website.

I typically watch birds on Saturday and Sunday. This is my report for 14-15 November 2020.

thank you very much for the photos of beautiful birds and information, have a good weekend and a great mood

There are wonderful poems and songs, legends and fairy tales about birds. We cannot do without birds. It is impossible even to imagine our land without birds! These are the voices of our forests, steppes, mountains and deserts. Bird songs are heard all year round. Their voices are heard day and night. And they need to help, these are our smaller brothers. Thank you very interesting.

thank you very much for the post, have a nice day
