Empty Nests, Full Hearts
As nesting season is winding down, some of us are starting to feel that empty nest syndrome setting in. Some participants may still have active nests, but the frenzied rush of spring and summer has come and gone, and the gradually shortening days signal the end of August and the onset of migration.
As birds prepare to embark on their journeys south, it’s time to start entering your data for NestWatch. Birds may be leaving, but the nest monitor’s job is not finished yet; you’re still needed! Log in today, and tell us what you saw this summer. It is especially helpful if we have all 2014 data by the years’ end for timely analysis.
