You say goodbye and I say hello

After three years as project assistant for NestWatch/NestCams, Kenyon Widger has decided to pursue other ventures. Kenyon often was the public face of the program. She answered many of your emails and phone calls, posted information on our forums, spent countless hours reviewing NestCams footage for fascinating clips to share, and coordinated our NestCams hosts. She also served as the interim project leader. We'll miss her and wish her the best.

Robyn Bailey is our newly-minted project assistant. Robyn earned an M.S. from the Department of Fisheries and Wildlife at Michigan State University where she studied the habitat relationships of the eastern massasauga rattlesnake. She also has an extensive background working with birds, including searching for and monitoring nests in California and Mississippi. In addition to working for NestWatch/NestCams, Robyn also is the project assistant for our newest citizen science program, YardMap. Welcome aboard, Robyn!

Who are you? Who, who, who, who?
We really wanna know! Are you a fan of NestCams? We're working to make it even better and we need your help. As part of this effort, we're collecting information on who our NestCam viewers are. If you watch our NestCams it would be tremendously helpful to us if you could complete a brief survey, if you haven't already done so, by clicking on this link: NESTCAMS SURVEY. We will summarize the results and share them with you in a future eNewsletter. Thank you in advance for your help!

NestWatch data in action

The nesting data that you collect really do matter. Jason Courter, a PhD candidate in the Department of Forestry and Natural Resources at Clemson University, is using NestWatch data in his research. He is comparing the timing of critical stages of nesting attempts with weather variables and the availability of food resources for birds, such as insects. Jason has hypothesized that some birds respond to climate changes by shifting the timing of their reproduction and that this may cause their hungry nestlings to miss peak periods of insect emergence. This pattern may lead to birds being less effective at contributing to the control of insect pests in farm fields. Jason hopes to use the results of his research to provide farmers with decision tools and management recommendations to enhance avian diversity on their farms.

Thank you for your participation in NestWatch to help science and the birds!
