How do I edit an attempt after it has been finalized?

At this time, you cannot edit a finalized nest attempt within the mobile app. If you need to edit the nest fate, nest totals (clutch size, unhatched eggs, live young, or fledglings), or any final comments, please log into the NestWatch website . Find the nest site and select “Site Summary.” You will see all the nest attempts for that site. Find the nest attempt and select “Edit attempt.” This will open the data entry table. Above the table, select the button, “Reopen attempt for editing.” Scroll to the bottom of the data entry table and select “Summarize this nesting attempt.” Make any edits and then select “End this nesting attempt.”
