Project Feeder Watch
From now until April 29th
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.
The Antelope Valley Chapter of the Audubon Society is committed to the preservation, research, and observation of birds in their natural habitats. Get involved by learning more about the native wild birds of the AV, by going on guided field trips with experts and fellow chapter members, and by photographing species in their habitats.
The primary purpose of the Antelope Valley Audubon Society, Inc (AVAS) is to provide educational programs and services that build awareness of the importance of birds and other wildlife, and to promote conservation and restoration of natural habitats, primarily in the Antelope Valley area.
The AVAS promotes the appreciation, love, and protection of birds through partnerships, education, conservation, and other activities in the Antelope Valley and surrounding areas.
