Winter Feeder Survey

If you enjoy feeding birds and have a bird feeder out, there’s still time to join the Winter Feeder Count! We are asking people living in Michigan to submit their information about the birds visiting their feeders monthly through April. There is a simple protocol to follow and the information gathered is valuable for protecting birds and the habitat they utilize.

Email John at to sign up.


For current participants:

You can now fill out your Count Day forms online! This survey is open to KNC volunteers to record observations of bird species for our winter feeder count program. Please fill out one form for each Count Day. Forms are due by the 15th of the month after the count day.
