Past Nest Records Revived

Our Nest Quest Go! project has been hard at work converting historical paper data into digital records for NestWatch this summer. We’re thrilled to announce that 33,738 old nest records have recently been added to our database. The uploaded projects include Cliff Swallows, gamebirds, waterfowl, shorebirds, and wrens and span the years 1911–2010. 

We are growing increasingly excited to approach the finish line on this effort to transform the collection of North American Nest-Record Cards into downloadable NestWatch records. What a tremendous accomplishment made possible by our dedicated Nest Quest Go! volunteers, whom we thank with deepest gratitude.
