Welcome New NestWatchers

Comparing the period Jan 1–May 25 of this year to last year, we have seen a 40% increase in the number of participants and a 30% increase in the number of nest records submitted to NestWatch (not counting bulk uploads). While our hope was to maintain similar levels of participation as in the past, you have surpassed our expectations and grown the database tremendously during this challenging time. 

We keep hearing that many people are turning to birdwatching as a respite, and we’re grateful that our project has continued to grow despite the many obstacles we all face. This also means that there are many new people in our community, so we wanted to take a moment and share some resources that will be helpful to newcomers:

As always, you can email us your questions, and we will do our best to respond in a timely manner. You can also connect with us on Facebook and Twitter. Thanks for joining this community of nest monitors; we’re glad you’re here.
