Welcome to Cornell Feeders Live!
In this investigation we will be studying the birds on the Cornell FeederWatch cam, located in the Treman Bird Feeder Garden at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. Sitting just on the edge of both Sapsucker Woods and its 10-acre pond, these feeders attract forest species like chickadees and woodpeckers as well as some species that prefer open environments near water like Red-winged Blackbirds.
We don’t know what questions we’ll investigate yet, but that’s because the scientists will work with participants to co-create the investigation together. Everyone in the Bird Cams Lab community is invited to join in any and all parts of the scientific process: asking the research question, deciding what data to collect, collecting data, looking for patterns, making interpretations, reviewing results, and sharing findings.
