Cornell Feeders Live Report Wraps Up Bird Cams Lab
July 30, 2021
Thanks to the thoughtful feedback of 15 reviewers, we are now in the last phase of the Cornell Feeders Live investigation: sharing findings. We invite you to read the report and share it with your family and friends. In the report, we document all the work we accomplished together as a community, and what the data revealed about birds visiting the Cornell FeederWatch cam. Check out the Final Report.
The Cornell Feeders Live report wraps up a series of six investigations that we completed over the past three years. Together, we amassed more than 500,000 observations and revealed new insights about the birds on three Bird Cams: Panama Fruit Feeder, Red-tailed Hawk, and Cornell FeederWatch.
As our grant from the National Science Foundation comes to an end, our evaluators at Rockman et al. are summarizing what we learned from participant experiences. Thank you so much to everyone who filled out surveys or participated in interviews for that effort! Our project team is also busy summarizing the impact of our work together and how what we’ve learned can help advance understanding and practices for co-created research. We will share our findings with you in an upcoming blog post.
Thank you to everyone who’s been a part of this community, whether you joined recently or have been with us from the beginning. We are excited to have reached this milestone, but will miss co-creating investigations with you. It’s been an exciting journey, and we are thrilled that you were able to join us along the way.
We hope you will continue to enjoy the cams, stay in touch with the Bird Cams community, and explore one or more of the many citizen-science opportunities that need your help. We’ve put together a list of ways you can stay connected with Bird Cams, learn more about birds, and contribute to science. If you have any questions as we wrap up the project, please see our Frequently Asked Questions, and feel free to share feedback using this form.
