About this app

Do you feed birds? You can report what you see for science. Project FeederWatch, a joint project of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and Birds Canada, monitors winter feeder-bird populations in North America. The FeederWatch Mobile App is a new way for Project FeederWatch members to contribute their bird counts.

Sign in to:
•Report birds that visit your count site in winter (US and Canada only)
•Track your sighting statistics in real time
•Access your archive of past counts from all years
•Contribute to North America’s largest database on feeder birds
•Find out what food and feeder types work best for the birds overwintering near you
•Identify and learn about feeder birds

FeederWatch Mobile automatically syncs with the web version for seamless multi-platform support. Your data become immediately available for scientific research, education, and conservation. Thank you for helping birds!

11-9-22 update:. After receiving message from developer that they fixed the app, I was once again able to access it! Thank you for fixing it! Still can't access app since update. Contacted developers and they said to uninstall and reinstall which I've done multiple times. Tried accessing again after 3 months and still can't get in. If you want people to pay to do the Feeder Watch project, get your app fixed or bring it back to the prior version that worked and would let you log in to it.

So sorry you had trouble with the app! We just released a bug fix that I hope will remedy things for you. (An operating system update changed the data storage interface on some phones.) If the app update does not solve your problem, please do email us at pfwonline@cornell.edu so we can get to the bottom of it! - Lisa, FeederWatch app team

I cannot get past the login attempt. I deleted and reinstalled and still get the same error messages to "restore modal checking" and "restore modal checking version" 11/3/22 There is a workable link on the app login page that takes you to the PFW webpage. I got to the data entry page and the *last* thing allowed is to enter bird counts - after entering all of the ancillary info first. Yay. Pre-realtime data!! Apparently I need to go back to paper and pencil. Please fix this app!!!

After over a month of attempts to use it, the app is very slow when it works at all. Mostly non-responsive. Buttons seem to register a 'touch' with a color wave through it, but then it never shows that button selected (e.g. hours watched). Too frustrating to use at all. UPDATE: New Android 10 phone. Much better responses but "buttons" can still require multiple presses to register. Adding count data a bit awkward but ok
