Project FeederWatch

Calling all birders!

Join Darke County Park District as we participate in Project FeederWatch, every Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:30-11:30am. This is a unique ‘Citizen Science’ program organized by Cornell University which studies winter bird populations. Your observations may be used in scientific journals and shared with ornithologists and bird lovers nationwide. No matter your birding level, beginner or expert, we need YOUR help!

We’ll gather inside the Nature Center at Shawnee Prairie Preserve (4267 St. Rt. 502 West) and count the birds that visit our bird-feeding station. Only available for a portion of the count time? That’s fine! Just drop in anytime on Tuesday or Wednesday from 9:30am-11:30am. And did we mention we’ll have warm drinks available?

For more information on Project FeederWatch or if you have any questions, call the Nature Center at 937.548.0165.
