Please share your feedback about your experience with the Wonder Board activity. Help us understand what you’ve liked about it and how we can make improvements. Thank you!

Welcome to the
Wonder Board forum!

Join Cornell Lab researcher Dr. Eliot Miller to look into the social life of the birds that visit the Panama Fruit Feeder Cam. In designing the last Bird Cams Lab investigation with this cam, the community expressed interest in learning more aggression. Now we can! When birds are foraging at the feeding table, who are the winner and the losers in gaining access to the food?

Help us figure out what we need to consider when answering this question and if there are other questions you want to investigate! 

We’ll be using Zooniverse and you can learn more about how we’ll use that tool here[INSERT LINK].
