JUNEAU - The 23rd season of Project FeederWatch started Nov. 13, but the Juneau Audubon Society is still inviting locals to sign up.
Counts will help scientists monitor changes in feeder-bird populations over the winter from year to year. New participants receive a kit with a handbook, a bird-identification poster, a calendar and an instruction booklet.
For more information about Project FeederWatch or to sign up visit www.birds.cornell.edu/pfw/ or call 800-843-2473. Cost is $15 fee to defray the cost of the materials, or $12 for members.
