This month we were pleased to upload 568 nest records from California’s Bay Area, thanks to veteran NestWatcher Lee Pauser. The dataset includes common box-nesting birds like Western Bluebird, Barn Owls, and Western Screech-Owls, but also includes some infrequent box-nesters like the Nuttall’s Woodpecker. In fact, there are just 40 records of Nuttall’s Woodpecker nests in our database, likely because the more typical nesting location would be high in a dead tree cavity in California’s oak woodlands. We thank Lee Pauser for contributing these valuable data to our NestWatch database!
