- Help requested for finding Pinyon Jay nesting areas in Nevada
GBBO would like to start a database for potential Pinyon Jay nesting areas. Pinyon Jays nest in loose colonies of 30-60 nests in the lower pinyon-juniper woodland zone. The nesting season is now over, but the nests are fairly visible year-round. We would like to request the hiking-and-birding public's help for identifying nesting areas.Photo by Martin Meyers
- eBird Needs Help in Nevada!
If you are a Nevada birder (at any level), eBird.org needs your help. Having evolved into the prime birders’ “social network”, eBird.org has become the ultimate clearinghouse for bird sightings across the continent. Nevada has big holes in birding coverage. So, next time you are driving across the state, please make a point of stopping to bird in all the obscure places that never get birded. To view these and to connect with eBird for free, click here.
