National Audubon needs citizen scientists to report observations of feeding hummingbirds during spring hummingbird migration, summer and fall migration. A free mobile app makes it easy to report sightings and learn more about these remarkable birds. Participation is free.
Your participation will help scientists understand how hummingbirds are impacted by climate change, flowering patterns, and feeding by people.
You can participate at any level – from reporting a single sighting to documenting hummingbird activity in your community throughout the life of the project. Help scientists document the hummingbirds journey and direct change in the future to ensure these incredible birds do not disappear.
