Go behind-the-scenes with Bird Cams staff to learn more about the Cornell FeederWatch cam and check out the data visualizations from the Cornell Feeders Live investigation.
On June 16, 164 people tuned in for an engaging hour all about the Cornell FeederWatch cam. Bird Cams staff showed where the cam is located at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and shared two of our favorite clips from the cam. They also walked everyone through the Cornell Feeders Live investigation and the data visualizations showing how different species visit the feeding station. Then, for the last half of the hour they answered questions submitted ahead of time and during the live session, resulting in an interesting conversation about bird feeding and the data.
Thank you to everyone who attended the live event or watched the archived recording. Please share any questions or thoughts you have in the forum below. We value your input as we explore and seek to understand the patterns in the data together.
We also invite you to explore the data visualizations featured in the webinar:
- When do smaller species visit the feeding station? – A visualization that shows the percentage chance of the four smaller study species (ex: American Goldfinch) visiting the feeding station during half-hour intervals
- When do larger species visit the feeding station? – A visualization that shows the percentage chance of the four larger study species (ex: Blue Jay) visiting the feeding station during half-hour intervals
