Grackles Galore

We recently uploaded 5,249 nest records of Common Grackles, Great-tailed Grackles, and Boat-tailed Grackles. These span the years 1919–2008, thus adding valuable historical information about these iridescent blackbirds to our long-term database. We thank the Nest Quest Go! participants for finishing up this project so quickly.

If you’d like to help transcribe more historical paper records into useable data for NestWatch, you can join our current active project Wrens. Every little bit helps save a piece of ornithological history!
