Welcome to the
Wonder Board forum!

Join a community of cam viewers and scientists to discover more about the North American birds visiting the feeders on the Cornell FeederWatch cam. We’ll be collecting data in real time from the cam (learn more about the tool here), but we first need to decide on a research question.

As you observe the birds on the cam, what do you wonder about? What could we study together?

Post your observations, questions, and wonderings below!
