As spring approaches, the Cornell Lab of Ornithology is getting ready to begin another season of NestWatch, a nest-monitoring project for all North American birds. They are hoping to grow their band of dedicated citizen scientists and study long-term changes in nesting behavior. If you have a budding little bird-watcher (like my 7 year old daughter for instance), then go to the NestWatch website to learn more!
And, be sure to check out their “Nest Cams” at https://www.allaboutbirds.org/cams/. Currently you can watch a barn owl on her nest 🙂
