Losing Time

You may have noticed that NestWatch data entry no longer asks you for the time of day that you made your nest visit. After hearing feedback on how the Time field slowed down data entry, and upon reflection on whether or not we needed this to do good science, we made the decision to cut Time. 

Our Nest Check Data Sheet does not yet reflect the change, but we will be updating this during the winter. We hope that this will improve your workflow and create fewer errors for participants. As always, we thank you for your feedback on how we can make data entry easier while still collecting quality data.
