How much time will this project require?

The time you devote to the project is entirely up to you. You may want to search for nests for a few days or for only a couple of hours. However, you should keep in mind that if you find a nest and want to follow it through the nesting season, you will need to give a bit of your time, possibly a few hours over two to four weeks. Although we accept nests that have been visited only once, we encourage you to make multiple visits (3-4 days apart) to the same nest as this provides us with valuable additional information.
