Finch Research Network Feedercam

With the sponsorship of Aspen Song Bird Seed a feedercam for finches is going up in Woodland Maine that will hopefully help educate about healthy bird feeding practices and also bring wellness for people through watching finches, which are perhaps most common cohort of birds at feeders across the world.

The health benefits of watching nature and birds are endless, and more and more studies continue to be published about these benefits, and if there was one silver lining to COVID, it was how people found calm and peace while engaging with nature whether by getting outdoors, or even by watching birds at feeders or on feedercams. Here’s a link listing several scientific studies about some of these benefits:
