Hello Everyone!

Fall has always been one of my favorite times of the year and it is also the time when Project FeederWatch starts. It’s how scientists have been tracking bird populations for over 15 years now. If you are interested in joining the program here are a couple of useful links – in the US: https://feederwatch.org/about/how-to-participate/ and if you are in Canada: http://www.birdscanada.org/news/join-project-feederwatch-and-have-fun-helping-birds.

Dr. Bird is asked about Woodpeckers that are attacking a stucco house outside of breeding season, and we’ve made a few changes to Winner’s Cirlce. From now on, everyone is limited to 2 (two) pictures per submission period.

In the headlines this week: two species of bird, the Florida Grasshopper Sparrow and the Imperial Amazon, are thought to be extinct in the wild after hurricanses have totally destroyed their remaining natural habitat. The Black Stilt, the rarest wading bird in the world is getting a new aviary that will hatch up to 175 Black Stilts a year, and the Democrats are trying to push through Bill SB 1920 that will ensure all new Federal Buildings will be built with high-efficiency anti-collion glass.

Have a great week everyone, stay warm as the temperatures drop, and don’t forget to keep your peanut feeders full, we aren’t the only ones who get cold!
