The Cornell Lab of Ornithology Needs Your Help With A Study

Have you ever wanted tCornell Lab of Ornithologyo contribute to science? The Cornell Lab of Ornithology is now launching a research study about how people observe birds, and we need your help! We’re looking for folks who are willing to watch birds at least a few times over a period of three months and who would be willing to answer a few surveys about their experiences.

The Cornell Lab of Ornithology is a nonprofit organization and a world leader in the study, appreciation, and conservation of birds. The organization advances the understanding of nature, and engages people of all ages in learning about birds and protecting the planet.

You don’t have to be a bird watcher or knowledgeable about birds to participate in this study. In fact, we’re primarily looking for people who are interested in and enjoy nature; no bird watching expertise needed.

If you would like to help us with our study, please fill out the linked survey to see if you qualify. (Unfortunately, we can only take folks who are over 18.) When the study is all over, we’ll give you a small gift card as a token of our appreciation.

We really appreciate your interest!

    sounds like an interesting thing to do as we live on a small farm and are quite interested in birds, flowers, weather, etc.

  2. I live and work in my gardens as much as possible, several hours a day usually. The birds are a big part of my gardens, from the cardinals soothing call early spring, the robins pulling up a worm from the earth to the wrens coming the third week in April and leaving the third week in August. Where will I find the nests this year ( there have been some fun places ) ? I painted my house the color of the goldfinch ’cause I love them so much. I could go on and on. i love birds in my gardens.

    Husband and I live on 80 acres with creek; many birds including nesting bald eagles.
    House finches, red ringed blackbirds, robins, doves, chickadees, kill deer, magpies, goldfinch, blue heron, various kinds of hawks, crows, Canada geese, ducks …..
    We are country folk — enjoy nature each day; enjoy gardening, both flowers and vegetables.
