FeederWatch App Download the app The FeederWatch app is available for both Apple and Android mobile devices. The app is free to registered FeederWatch participants. If you haven’t signed up for FeederWatch, join now. What you will find in the app You can use the FeederWatch app to keep track of your counts, note your snow depth and effort, and submit your counts directly to our database. No need for a paper tally sheet or to transfer your counts to the website! You can also describe your count site in the app, view a list of species you have reported to FeederWatch, and more. The app is connected to the Cornell Lab’s All About Birds online guide. Just press and hold any species while entering your count, and you can see detailed information, including photos, identification tips, natural history, and a range map. And at the bottom of the app’s home page, you can access FeederWatch’s Common Feeder Birds interactive tool to see which birds prefer which foods in any region of the U.S. or Canada Although the app has everything you need to submit counts for FeederWatch, you still need to go to our website to report behavior interactions or submit photos. We’ve described how to do these things at the bottom of this page. Tips for using the app You must be connected to the internet to use the app. If you become disconnected, the app will lock until the connection is restored. You need to have iOS 9 (Sept 2015) or higher or Android 6 (Marshmallow, 2015) or higher to use the app. To report the presence or absence of eye disease in finches, press and hold the finch image in the app or tap the species name to bring up a detailed page where you can indicate if you checked for eye disease. Continue using the website for behavioral interactions and photo uploads Note that there may be a delay of 60 minutes from when something is entered in the app before it will appear on the website and vice versa. To report behavior interactions, go to the Your Data section of the FeederWatch website after you complete your count in the app. Click on the View or Edit Your Previous Counts button to see all of the counts you submitted this season. Next click “Actions” and then “Edit” under the date of the count with behavior interactions you want to report. That will bring you to the data entry page for that count where you can click the behavior interactions link in the left navigation bar to scroll straight to that section. Then be sure to scroll to the bottom and click the Finish button to submit the changes you made. To submit a photo to confirm your report of a rare bird or high count in the app, go to the Your Data section of the FeederWatch website and click on the View or Edit Your Previous Counts button to see all of the counts you submitted this season. Next click “Actions” and then “Edit” under the date when you were asked to confirm a bird report. Scroll down the list of birds until you reach the bird count you were asked to confirm, and click the link in the confirmation box to upload a photo. If no link appears to attach a photo, try removing the count for the species, clicking somewhere else on the page, and then re-entering a count for the species. That should bring up the option to attach a photo. If you are confirming a high count, you will need to confirm the count first and then a link to upload a photo will appear. To submit photos you wish to share, go to the Your Data section of the FeederWatch website and scroll to the bottom of the page to find links to submit photos to our photo galleries.
