Default Nestwatch: Anyone doing this

From www.nestwatch.org
"NestWatch is a collaborative effort involving many institutions and thousands of citizen scientists interested in monitoring the success of nesting birds across North America. Won’t you join us?"

So basically you create an account, take a bird monitor quiz to prove you read the code of conduct, and then get instructions for monitoring a bird nest (can be in a box or a tree or wherever) and upload your data for analysis. I decided to monitor a Cooper's Hawk Nest but if I can find another nest that's on the same route I may more.

I added my first nestwatch nest today.

I participated last year, and plan on continuing this year.

It's kind of neat to go back and see EXACTLY what day I found eggs, what day they hatched, fledged, etc from last year.

I had Blue Birds, Tree Swallows, a Killdeer (Plover) and Carolina Wren hatch eggs (successful fledges).

I would encourage anyone who is interested to participate!

Take Care!

Good idea! I've been checking out this program but hadn't signed up yet though I do the GBBC, and I watch a RTH nest and we have two Peregrine nestboxes as well.
