New tool for entering past data

We are delighted to announce a new tool that makes it possible to enter data 
from past seasons! If you look over your data online and notice a missing 
count, you can now enter that count if you saved your tally sheets from that 
season. Or if you come across a pile of tally sheets that you never entered, 
you can now enter them online.

To use the new tool, you must be registered for the current FeederWatch season. 
Enter past FeederWatch counts by clicking the "Enter a Count" button just as 
you normally would to enter data. Then on the calendar page, before you select 
a date, click on the link that says "Need to enter data for a previous season?" 
That will bring up a drop down list of FeederWatch seasons. Select the year you 
need and then when the calendar appears, select your date and proceed as you 
normally would to enter your count for that date.

Note that only data collected using the FeederWatch counting instructions can 
be entered. Please do not enter observations you recorded over the years that 
were not collected according to the FeederWatch protocols.

Ruby-throated Hummingbirds expand winter range

 Read about how Ruby-throated Hummingbirds are expanding their winter range 
into the southeastern United States in our latest blog post by Cornell student 
Lauren Flesher. Reporting on recent research, she wrote, "The wintering range 
of the Ruby-throated Hummingbirds has expanded dramatically in the last several 
decades with the range shifting nearly 200 miles northward. These hummingbirds 
can now reliably be found in winter from the Gulf Coast states up the Atlantic 
Coast to South Carolina."

Watch a clever crow try to carry off all the peanuts

The Cornell Lab's Bird Cam crew captured an entertaining video of an American 
Crow arranging and rearranging peanuts to get as many as it could in its bill. 
How many whole peanuts do you think a crow can carry?  
 Watch the video to see if you are right, or  
 watch the cam live and see what's visiting now.

 All About Bird Anatomy free interactive from
