Nest Record Scheme

June 23rd, 2019

With the winter season soon turning into spring, we need your help in increasing our knowledge of a very important aspect of bird behaviour!

With the Nest Recording Scheme you can help to fill the gaps in our knowledge. Are you able to observe birds nesting in your garden or neighbourhood park; or are you already undertaking valuable research on a species that could be reported ? Please check https://www.birdsnz.org.nz/schemes/nest-record-scheme/ or contact the Nest Records Scheme Convenor. Any contribution would be much appreciated.

The Nest Recording Scheme aims to provide abundant & comprehensive data on length, time & peak of breeding seasons, clutch size, number of clutches, incubation & fledgling periods, nest sites & materials used in nest building. Many nest record cards are needed to help provide detailed information & a vital understanding of the breeding behaviour for each bird species.
