If you are an avid yard birder who mostly enjoys birds by watching them from the comfort of your home, then Project FeederWatch is for you. FeederWatchers periodically count the birds they see at their feeders from November through early April and send their counts to Project FeederWatch.  Anyone interested in birds can participate. The 29th season of Project FeederWatch begins November 14, 2015. Sign up here:
