in Birding / Wildlifelast month

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 24-25 April 2021.

This one from American Robin is the one I liked the most.

thank you very much for sharing, beautiful photos of birds, have a good day and a great mood

I'm glad the project continues to exploit its potential… keep up the good work.

Hi @etcmike, one of the things I love about bird watching is the peace you feel, it's a total disconnection.

Hello @etcmike, in that area you have not seen bigger birds bothering the little ones.

thank you very much for sharing the project, have a good day

Greetings friend @etcmike, quite an active day, thank you for sharing your experiences.

I have a great interest to photography. But I have no good camera. Once I saved enough amount of money to buy a camera. But then my mother became sick. I spent money for her treatment. But I still take photo by my mobile phone camera. You can visit me. I will be glad to see you in my blog.
