New FeederWatch Cam host
Last spring the FeederWatch Cam migrated from Colorado to Canada. Its new home in Manitouwadge, Ontario, is within the boreal forest, promising plenty of views of northern finches including redpolls, Pine Siskins, Evening Grosbeaks, and Pine Grosbeaks. Tammie Hache, the new cam host, is eager to share her birds with the world. Check out the live video stream to view the latest activity at the feeders or post a comment or question for Tammie.

Read about what FeederWatch participants saw at their feeders last winter. The publication is being mailed to all Canadian FeederWatch participants in their kits and will be mailed to all U.S. participants with the fall issue of BirdScope. Winter Bird Highlights is also available online as a pdf.
New U.S. project assistant
After three years as a FeederWatch project assistant, Genna Knight has moved on to tackle new adventures, including caring for two young children. We miss Genna and wish her all the best in her new pursuits. This summer we welcomed Susan Newman as our new project assistant. She comes with experience teaching biology at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City and as a naturalist at The Wild Center in the Adirondack Mountains. We are excited to have Susan on the U.S. FeederWatch team.
