North American bird species nesting season animations


This nesting season animation is called American Kestrel.

From NestWatch in the USA:

Nesting Season Animations

Watch the progression of the nesting season like never before! Dots, representing single nests in our database, will appear on the date when the first egg was laid and will remain on the map for the average length of the nesting cycle for that particular species. Look for latitudinal and elevational patterns as the animations progress in 1-day time steps. Note that these models are only as good as the data on which they are based. The more observations that NestWatchers submit, the more accurate these models will become. You can help us improve our understanding of the nesting timeline by contributing your observations today! Note that most nests from 2013 will not be included in these animations until a later date.

This nesting season animation is called American Robin.

In this blog post, there are only two videos, about two bird species early in the alphabetical sequence: American kestrel, and American robin.
