How are the Top 25 lists created?

After each season, FeederWatch scientists merge all the data submitted over the Internet and on paper data forms. After the reports are run through a series of editing programs, the data are summarized into two variables for each species: percentage of feeders visited and mean group size. The Top 25 lists are based on these two variables.
