When do smaller species visit the feeding station?
Reading the Graph: When do species arrive at the feeder? In the morning? As the sun sets? How do species compare? Find out and see if you notice any patterns by simplifying the graph with the interactive feature. Look for the checked boxes under “Choose What to Display,” and toggle on and off the different species.
Notes: Each day is split into 30-minute intervals from 5:00 to 20:30 (i.e. 8:30 PM), and the height of each bar is the percentage chance that a species will arrive during each of those time intervals. Each color refers to one of the four smaller focal species. The four larger focal species (Blue Jay, Northern Cardinal, Red-bellied Woodpecker, Red-winged Blackbird) are featured in another graph. Be careful comparing different graphs because the values on the vertical axis will change.
