Legend

This graph is titled "Are There More Birds in Bad Weather?" and displays the number of birds increasing from 1 to 10+ on the horizontal axis and the percentage of clips on the vertical axis. There are three data sets displayed, each indicated by a different color. The green bars refer to the percentage of clips with precipitation, the orange bars refer to the percentage of clips with no precipitation, and the blue bars refer to the percentage of clips where it wasn't clear whether there was precipitation or not. There is no clear pattern or relationship between the number of birds at the feeder and the percentage of clips with precipitation. About 20-30% of clips have precipitation for each number of birds bin.
