Join in the next phase of the Cornell Feeders Live investigation.

Cornell Feeders Live is a investigation co-created by scientists and Cornell FeederWatch cam viewers. The community spent several weeks watching the feeder, coming up with questions, refining and revising those questions, and then deciding what data to collect. With the questions in hand and the data tagging tool ready to go, we can start collecting data.

We seek to answer these questions:

  1. What is the daily visitation pattern of different species at the feeders?
  2. How does weather affect the probability of different species visiting the feeders?
