Stories from the archives: Larry Walkinshaw, “Father of Cranes”

Our Nest Quest Go! project is bringing the Lab’s historic nest record cards out of the filing cabinet and into the digital era. While digitizing bird nesting data is our primary goal, we also want to highlight the stories of remarkable people like Larry Walkinshaw, a fellow birder, conservationist, and prolific citizen scientist.

Your Junco Nest Observations Could Help Researchers Impeded by COVID-19

Nesting season is upon us, and yet researchers studying urban-nesting juncos have found their research halted by stay-at-home ordinances in response to COVID-19. They’re inviting anyone who finds a junco nest (of any subspecies) to please report the details to NestWatch. Together we can help the junco research team continue their studies even as we all stick close to home!
