Preserving Legacy

In July 2022, Ohio lost a longtime champion of conservation. Mr. Dick Tuttle had been building, maintaining, and monitoring nest boxes for five decades in his community. Upon his death, friends rallied to digitize his nest box data and preserve his 53 years of nest records in perpetuity for NestWatch. On our blog this month, we honor his conservation legacy and celebrate the archival of his 17,362 nest records for 10 species of native birds.
