Bulk Uploads Keep January Bustling
We were able to bulk upload 1,199 nest records from 3 contributors this month. Even in January, there is plenty to keep us busy! Our esteemed contributors represent diverse regions and species:
- Loyd Marshall contributed 159 Prothonotary Warbler nests from 10 years of monitoring in the Mosquito Creek Lake area of Ohio. This species is in decline, and the installation of nest boxes with predator guards in forested wetlands has been successful at increasing local populations.
- Laura Claggett facilitated the uploading of 897 nest records on behalf of the Bella Vista Bluebird Society in Arkansas. All records were from 2020, a very large single-year import indeed!
- Conor Taff and Maren Vitousek contributed 143 Tree Swallow nest records from Tompkins County, New York, adding to their now 35-year dataset. This astonishing long-term record is invaluable for its historical look at Tree Swallow nesting biology.
