Massachusetts Audubon Society’s Focus on Feeders

Pine Siskins (Carduelis pinus)Pine Siskins ~ Carduelis pinus

Hi Kim,

I really enjoyed your latest blog entry with the photos of the birds at your feeder. In case you are interested (or would like to let your readers know), we have our free annual Focus on Feeders Weekend coming up on Feb. 5 & 6.

In a nutshell (or a suet feeder) we ask people to fill out a simple form noting the number and diverse species of birds visiting a backyard feeder. All of those who submit reports will be entered into a random drawing contest for free prizes. We’re also encouraging people to submit their wildlife photos (can be any animal species) and we will award prizes in several different categories.

It helps us to track trends in abundance and distribution patterns of birds. We’ve run this fun event for 40 years now and over time have collected quite an interesting database of information.

For more information or to download a reporting form, please visit:

Thanks for helping us spread the word among your friends.
