Seed Preference Research

Note to citizen scientists: Please post your general winter bird survey data in the creating the context area (located here). This data submission page is for classrooms participating in the seed preference research.

Count birds on two consecutive days only, and only at one feeder, with one type of seed. Please record which days you counted birds in the spaces below. In order to participate it is necessary for teachers to first register using the online registration form. You must enter your UserID and Password before you can submit data in the Guided Area. If you are already a registered PathFinder Science teacher, it is not necessary to register again. Submit one form per feeder/seed type for each of the two consecutive days. Submit a different form (same date) for different feeders/seed types.
