Bulk Uploads Abound
This month we bulk-uploaded 1,428 nest records into NestWatch! Of these, 790 were Purple Martin nest records from Pennsylvania. This data set spanned 12 years (2007-2018). We thank Henry Glick for collecting the data, and Jon Kauffman of Shaver’s Creek Environmental Center for making the data available digitally. The remaining 638 nest records were from nest boxes in the Bay Area of California, courtesy of longtime NestWatcher Lee Pauser.
We accept large data sets year-round of any species, including those not in nest boxes. Contact us if you have nesting data that you’d like to permanently archive with NestWatch.
