The Feeder Crawl will start at Songbird Station at 8 a.m. From there we’ll ‘crawl’ to various backyard bird feeders in and around the Columbia area and count birds for at least 15 minutes at each backyard, then submit each checklist to eBird.  The trip will last about 2 to 3 hours and return to Songbird Station for coffee and donuts. Afterwards anyone who wishes may join me birding CANS.
