More Bulk Uploads

NestWatch continues to import bulk data. This month, we added 219 nest records from Leaser Lake in Lehigh County, Pennsylvania. Leaser Lake Heritage Foundation members John Higgins and Mike McCartney approached us with a data set that included Tree Swallows, Eastern Bluebirds, House Wrens, Wood Ducks, and American Kestrels, among others. The nest boxes were installed as part of the Foundation’s environmental education initiative to connect local youth with the lake. In addition to nest boxes, youth have built turtle loafing platforms, conducted stream and plankton studies, and restored the lake’s riparian zone. 

Do you have an abundance of nest records? If you have >100 nest records (either historical or from this breeding season), please inquire about NestWatch’s Bulk Import Tool. We would love to add your records to our data set which currently includes over 311,000 nests! Contact us to find out more.
