Battling Birds

| 0 comments

Come watch feeder birds battle it out in one of the latest Zooniverse project, Battling Birds.

Battling Birds is a part of a larger project that the Cornell Lab of Ornithology is co-developing with viewers called the Birds Cams Lab in which scientists and viewers work together to create scientific investigations.

The main goal of Battling Birds is to better understand birds and their behavior at feeders. It’s known that birds interact with each other, but there are still questions left unanswered about what may influence these interactions.

We have thousands of clips from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s FeederWatch Cam ready for you to watch and tag. But don’t just classify the data! Join us on the forums to ask questions, discuss what you are seeing, and be a part of the community.

To get started, head over to www.zooniverse.org/projects/canagica/battling-birds and either start classifying clips or join in the discussion on the forums.

See you there!
