Citizen science is a great way to involve children and adults in discovery and contribute to scientific research and conservation. Project FeederWatch through Cornell University is a great way to get involved in citizen science. You can learn more at the Project FeederWatch website.

I typically watch birds on Saturday and Sunday. This is my report for 3-4 April 2021.

Sir your all birds are looking very beautiful.Thank you to sharing this project with us.

Your selfless love for birds. I am really fascinated by that. Many thanks and best wishes to you for this generous work.😊

Amazing shots of some beautiful birds. Thanks for sharing.

The upper part of the Northern Cardinal's head is really amazing.

Common Grackles look quite stretched, and they are noisy too. I think Grackles are one of the bird species that practice Anting. They permit ants to walk all over their plumage and body while the ants produce an acid through their bites. This act aids in getting rid of some parasites on the birds.

Very interesting!

Have a great weekend!
Steem on,
Mike
