NestWatchers Continue to Set New Records

Congratulations, NestWatchers! You’ve just broken the records for four more species: Eastern Phoebe, American Robin, Mourning Dove, and Barn Swallow! Together with the House Finch and Northern Cardinal (last month’s record-breakers), that makes six species with all-time high numbers in our database. The more data you submit, the better we can track breeding success across a variety of species and locations, so we encourage you to submit your 2013 data now. Even if you found just one nest, we hope you’ll report it to Who knows, you could be the only person in your county to contribute a record for that species!
