I'm finding that Project Feeder Watch is very different than eBird! This is
my first year participating in this program, and I'm still reading the
instructions as to what I can count and what I can't. I'm trying to do both
entries, and it's more work for sure, but a worthwhile effort.
This morning I had 11 species that I could count, and only a few that I
can't. Although it bothers me that I can't count 2 Downy's because the male
and female were not together. Luckily the Cardinals were!
