Bird Man Mel Live on Columbia Morning with David Lile!

Mel joined David Lile on KFRU this morning.  If you would like to hear the broadcast -listen here Bird Man Mel on KFRU!

Mel and David discussed Project FeederWatch during the segment and wanted to share more information on the project and how to join. Project FeederWatch turns your love of feeding birds into scientific discoveries. FeederWatch is a November-April survey of birds that visit backyards, nature centers, community areas, and other locales in North America. You don’t even need a feeder! All you need is an area with plantings, habitat, water or food that attracts birds. The schedule is completely flexible. Count your birds for as long as you like on days of your choosing, then enter your counts online. Your counts allow you to track what is happening to birds around your home and contribute to a continental data-set of bird distribution and abundance.  Join the count!

Project FeederWatch is operated by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and Birds Canada. Since 2016, Project FeederWatch has been sponsored by Wild Bird Unlimited. We thank them for their support!

It is so important to us to encourage everyone to see the beauty and wonder of God’s world.
