Scientists at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology have noticed a decline in certain species of birds over the past three decades, although an exact cause is unknown. To help better understand what might be causing the downward trend, they are inviting the public to participate in “nest watching”. Anyone can go on the website and begin tracking data on nests that they spot. By recording information on how many eggs are laid, how many hatch, and how many survive, the scientists will get a better idea of what is happening to birds around the country. So what are you waiting for? Grab a notebook and binoculars and start saving the birds!
