Small, Tall, We Archive Them All

Our Nest Quest Go! project continues to upload historical data into the NestWatch archives. Tree Swallows were added this month, increasing the number of nest records by 19,851! We also completed Great Blue Herons, which added 2,784 nest records to our database. These data spanned the years 1922–2010, contributing valuable historical information that scientists can now access. We are so grateful for the Nest Quest Go! volunteers who transcribed these data for posterity; we couldn’t do it without you.
