Website Update

We’re thrilled to announce that project-wide data downloads are now available online. You can once again explore NestWatch data for the United States and Canada. Participants can export data summaries in three easy steps:

  • Go to
  • Select the species, year, and location of interest.
  • Select the type of data you’d like to download: species summaries, reproductive success calculations, or raw nesting attempt data. You can either accept the default variables or customize your own list of variables.

That’s it! You’re ready to export the data, which comes packaged as an Excel spreadsheet. Please note: these data are intended to be used for casual exploration by the curious citizen scientist. If you are interested in using NestWatch data as part of a formal research project, please contact us by emailing and including “NestWatch Data Sharing Program” in the subject line.
