Which Question to Investigate?

The observations and the discussion on the Wonder Board generated a variety of questions, and we’ve summarized the questions with the most upvotes into five groups to focus the conversation on honing the most interesting and answerable questions before we take a vote.

  1. What species are the first and last species to arrive at the feeders?
  2. When do species arrive at the feeders throughout the day?
  3. Does the number of visits change with weather (i.e., temperature, atmospheric pressure, precipitation)?
  4. Are birds (or specific species) more likely to go to a feeder if other birds are already present on the feeders?
  5. What food is preferred by all species visiting the feeder?
