I have many nest sites to enter. Is there a way to speed this process up?

If your nests or nest boxes have a lot of similar characteristics to your other nest sites (habitat, height, orientation, etc.), you can copy over the information from an existing site’s location (not available on mobile app).

  1. Navigate to Your Data home page. Add the first site and choose the location either by using the map, latitude/longitude, or street address options. Enter as much nest site information as you can. Save this site.
  2. Return to Your Data homepage to add another site, and find the location on the map. This time, choose the option to “Copy the description of an existing site,” which is located on the far right of the Site Description section, just under the map. Select the nest site whose information you want to copy, name the new site, and click “Save”. Afterwards, you can always edit the individual site locations and descriptions from the Your Data homepage by clicking “Manage Location” under the relevant nest site listed in your Nest Site List.
