A New Chapter for NestWatch

We are excited to announce that beginning this spring NestWatch Chapters and Local Coordinators across the country will begin teaching new NestWatchers how to safely find and monitor bird nests. With the help of these local partners, who have been trained to facilitate NestWatch workshops, we will be able to greatly increase the amount of data submitted to NestWatch so that we can more accurately monitor the status of breeding birds.
