Rare bird sightings

Project FeederWatch is a winter-long survey of birds that visit feeders at backyards, nature centers, community areas, and other locales in North America. FeederWatchers periodically count the birds they see at their feeders from November through early April and send their counts to Project FeederWatch. Anyone interested in birds can participate. The 28th season of Project FeederWatch begins November 8, 2014. Read more:
