Hooray For Hawaii!
With the recent addition of House Finch and Japanese White-eye nests in Hawaii, NestWatchers have officially recorded nesting attempts in all 50 states! Mary Ann Bondy of Kihei, on the island of Maui, observed these two species and added them to our database. Mary Ann was thrilled to discover she was our first Hawaiian NestWatcher and pledged, “I will continue to keep my eye out for additional nests!”
The Japanese White-eye is also a new species for NestWatch. And the House Finch, incidentally, has also just exceeded its previous high count from 2014. You never know which nest is going to make the difference.
