Our projects are flying on Zooniverse! Join the transcription fun.

Epic Uploading in 2022

We have been busy turning your transcriptions into data for scientists to use to better understand nesting birds. To date, we have more than 75,000 new Nest Quest Go! records in the NestWatch database, which is about a third of our total historical nest record collection. These uploads consist of numerous species including titmice, tanagers, blackbirds, sparrows, warblers, raptors, hummingbirds, and many more! Congratulations on an incredible accomplishment only made possible by devoted Zooniverse transcribers.

Downloading Data

In early 2023, we hope to have a new data download system that makes it easier for you to request nesting data on your species of interest. If you are interested in using NestWatch data as a part of a formal research or management project in the next two months, please email and include "NestWatch Data Sharing Program" in the subject line. Stay-tuned for an improved version in the New Year.

Tree Swallows

We recently launched a big project, Tree Swallows, consisting of 21,890 nest records. We expect this project to run through much of 2023. This species is in decline throughout much of its breeding range, making these data invaluable in understanding more about Tree Swallow nesting behavior.
