Peek into the hidden world of cavity nesting birds and enjoy the thrill of watching young birds growing up, all while advancing bird science.
As a Nest Box Monitor, you will adopt and monitor nest boxes within a Washtenaw County nature preserve. Your work generates essential knowledge and understanding of bird populations in Washtenaw County. Your observations will inform land managers, improving stewardship outcomes for plants, birds, and other animals, as well as advance understanding of local birds. Monitors also contribute to science on state and national levels, supporting efforts by the Michigan Blue Bird Society and Cornell’s Project Nest Watch.
