Subject: Brand New Course: Feeder Bird ID and Behavior
Bird feeding is a joyful reminder of the wild—right in your backyard..
And there's so much more to feeding birds than keeping the feeders well stocked.
Ready to confidently distinguish among the finches and the sparrows?
Learn how to attract more species?
Decode feeder bird body language?
Recognize the dramas unfolding at your feeder?
The Cornell Lab's Bird Academy has created a new online course, Feeder Birds: Identification and Behavior, to help you get more out of your bird feeding experience.
Learn Tricky IDs with SnapID: Innovative New Practice Tool
Build your confidence with easily confused species at your feeder, such as Purple and House Finch. As you play and replay SnapID, your winning streaks reveal the moment when you've mastered those tricky IDs.
Decode Bird Body Language
Gain fascinating insight into your feeder birds' lives and social interactions through subtle body language. We will teach you how to interpret bird behaviors and help you uncover a whole new way to appreciate and enjoy feeder birds.
Attract New Species to Your Feeder
The key to drawing new birds to your feeders is getting a handle on who eats what (and why!). Get the full scoop on feeding styles so that you can tailor your feeding setup to attract the birds you most wish would visit your backyard.
Free Bonus: Full Color Poster and FeederWatch Membership
As a bonus for participating in this course, we'll send you a free high quality double-sided color poster of the common feeder birds (East and West) and provide a one-year membership to the FeederWatch citizen science project.
