The local residents birds have begun to nest. They are setting up nests in the prime locations before most of the migrants arrive.
Nests are by design most times hard to find. You have to watch bird behavior as to clues of where to look. Nest watch has “How to Find Nests” information” on its website.
Nest Watch is a citizen science project sponsored by the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology. Amateur naturalists, like you and me, monitor the success rate of nests and report their finding to the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology. You can learn about the program and sign up at nestwatch.org
