THE BROOD X BIRD FEAST

A Citizen Science Opportunity 

 

Cicada Brood X will be emerging over 15 states this spring. How does this sudden abundance disrupt local food webs as birds shift their diet? Help figure it out by watching birds feeding, then sharing your observations using the protocol described here. Please share this with anyone else who might be interested in participating!
