Backyard Bird Chat
The Backyard Bird Chat allows members to communicate with one another about wild birds, bird feeding, and observing nature found in their backyard. View the excerpt Attracting American Goldfinches from the Backyard Bird Chat.
National Bird-Feeding Society members have opportunities to participate in scientific research on wild bird feeding. The Society has assisted in studies on bird seed preferences and Evening Grosbeak subspecies. For the bird seed preference study, participants received free bird feeders, bird seed, poles, and squirrel baffles and in exchange, were responsible for recording the number of birds visiting their feeders. For the Evening Grosbeak study, individuals who regularly had Evening Grosbeaks at their bird feeders were needed.
