FREE Science opportunity----Nest Watch

Do you have any birds nesting in your yard?  A mallard duck in your garden?  Maybe a robin under your deck?  Why not turn this event into your homeschool science for the spring?  Once again, the Cornell Lab of Ornithology wants our help.  They have created a website called NestWatch.org.  If you have nesting birds near you, they would like you to help them by recording certain data on their website.  Here is what the site states: 

Anyone can monitor nests - it's a rewarding way to spend time outdoors and participate in science.
NestWatch is a continentwide citizen-science project and nest-monitoring database of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, funded by the National Science Foundation and developed in collaboration with the Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center. 
This project is based upon work supported by the National Science Foundation under grant No. 0540185. Any opinions, findings, and conclusions or recommendations expressed in these materials are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the views of the National Science Foundation.
