Whether in a shrub, a tree, or a nest box, bird nests are all around us. By monitoring a nearby nest, you can help scientists study the biology of North America’s birds and how it might be changing over time. Every spring and summer, volunteers from across the country visit nests and report their findings to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s NestWatch program. As a NestWatcher, you keep tabs on bird family life, following the progression from incubated eggs, to fuzzy chicks, to gawky youngsters ready to take their first fluttering flight. You will submit your data online, where it is added to a continually growing database that is used to monitor bird populations and study their behavior. Through our collective efforts, we aim to better understand how and why bird populations thrive and decline so that ultimately we can take the necessary steps to conserve birds everywhere.
