Bird Citizen Science Project

Posted August 19th at 4:33 pm in Surveys by Mike Daniels

Devon Birds has been notified about a Citizen Science Project that has been launched, where volunteers can submit observations of birds foraging in either human or natural resources.

The first aim of the project is to study how commonly different species in different areas of the UK eat human foods and litter instead of "natural" food like worms and insects. The second aim is to engage more people in birdwatching: a common barrier is that most citizen science projects require bird ID skills, so this study has been designed in a way that no previous knowledge on birds is required. The hope is that this will help to engage more people with nature and birds, especially young people.

The study will be open until 26th August and volunteers can participate as many times as they like.
