Join Us for Beginning Birdwatching & Project Feederwatch!
Saturday, November 20, and the 3rd Saturday of each month through April 2022.


Drop in anytime between 10am - Noon.

At the Jacoby Creek School Garden - just north of Jacoby Creek School in Bayside on the west side of Old Arcata Road.


Project FeederWatch began in Ontario in the mid-1970s, and has since expanded to include all of North America.


It’s a winter-long (November-April) citizen science survey of birds that visit feeders at backyards, nature centers, community areas, and other locales in North America. Participants periodically count the birds they see at their feeders and send their counts to Project FeederWatch.


Anyone interested in birds can participate. FeederWatch is conducted by people of all skill levels and backgrounds, including children, families, individuals, classrooms, retired persons, youth groups, nature centers, and bird clubs.


FeederWatch data help scientists track broadscale movements of winter bird populations and long-term trends in bird distribution and abundance. FeederWatch results are regularly published in scientific journals and are shared with ornithologists and bird lovers nationwide.

At the Jacoby Creek School Garden, Redwood Region Audubon Society is teaming up with Garden Coordinator, Sue Moore to help with their FeederWatch. Beginning Saturday, November 20, 2021, drop-in anytime between 10am to 12pm, every 3rd Saturday through April 9, 2022.

Everyone is welcome to come watch and learn about birds in an informal, family-friendly setting. Bring binoculars and be prepared to wear a mask and practice social distancing. Jacoby Creek School Garden is located on the west side of Old Arcata Road, just north of the school at 1617 Old Arcata Road in Bayside.
