Anyone wanna help me do some ecology?
If you have a bird feeder, please help! I am a graduate student finishing up at Mississippi State and starting at University of Florida in the Fall. I am not a forum user, just a listener. I know this is a weird place to ask, but I'm running out of steam on twitter.
I am in need of survey data and photographs for my research. Several studies describe how bird feeders influence bird communities, but few studies also consider landscape context.
I am seeking general information about where people place bird feeders. If you or someone you know has a bird feeder, whether active or not, please fill out this questionnaire (5 questions, 30 seconds) and/or email two photos (one of the feeder and one of the surface directly underneath; see example photos below).
Do you have more than one feeder? Please select one at random to describe for the survey. Would you like to submit photos of more than one feeder? I welcome them all. Also, feel free to share this survey with other bird feeder owners.
Questions, comments, and photos can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject â€œBird Feederâ€ â€¨
