Mountain Birdwatch

Goal: Monitor songbird populations in N.E. United States at high elevations. Mountain Birdwatch citizen scientists conduct simple counts of only 10 bird species (e.g., Bicknell's thrush, blackpoll warbler, white-throated sparrow) at a fixed location along hiking trails of the northeastern United States. 

Location: Hiking trails in NY, NH, VT, and ME; Choose one route from 129 available routes which are placed along hiking trails; there are opportunities for birders of all skill levels to contribute data. 

When: Surveys take place on just one morning in June with fair weather each year - you choose the date to fit with your schedule.

Audubon 'Hummingbirds at Home' - National Audubon Society

Goal: Learn how hummingbirds are reacting to climate change. National Audubon needs citizen scientists to report observations of feeding hummingbirds during spring migration, summer and fall migration. Your participation will help scientists understand how hummingbirds are impacted by climate change, flowering patterns, and feeding by people. 

Location: Any location in the continental USA (excluding Hawaii); use your smartphone or laptop. A free mobile app makes it easy to report sightings.

When: Participation can occur at any time of the year, but we have an interest in learning about hummingbird feeding interactions during spring and fall migration and during the summer.
