Colorful Finches Lead The Way In Ontario

Speaking of winter bird feeding, have you checked out the Ontario FeederWatch cam yet? We've already welcomed massive flocks of vibrant Evening Grosbeaks and a handful of their colorful cousins—Pine Grosbeaks—to the cam in Manitouwadge, Ontario. See who stops in next! Watch live

This fall marked another first for the cam when a female Northern Cardinal began visiting on Halloween weekend! This bird may be common to some, but it's rare for this species to range this far north. In fact, Tammie Hache (cam host and long-time participant of Project FeederWatch) shared that this cardinal is only the second bird to visit her backyard since 2004, when she first set up her feeders.

Fall Birdwatching Bundle Winner Announced

Congratulations to Carole Ludwig—the grand-prize winner of the 2022 Ultimate Fall Birdwatching Bundle! Carole will be receiving a package of prizes including binoculars from ZEISS, feeders from Perky-Pet, and birding resources from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. 

As a resident of northeastern Pennsylvania, Carole is excited to use her new binoculars to watch Bald Eagles that nest nearby at the Delaware Water Gap. She also shared that, "Right now, the fall colors are a great backdrop for some of the small lakes and ponds in my neighborhood where there are always ducks, geese, and sometimes herons to watch." 

Carole also enjoys photography. This weekend, her feeder was dominated by Tufted Titmice, and she was able to snap a shot this photogenic individual.
