Creating the Ideal Avian Abode: Join the Nesting Structure Challenge

View the webinar

The decline of cavity-nesting birds over the last few decades due to habitat loss has been well documented. Providing artificial nesting structures is one important way that corporate conservation projects can support avian species, and citizen science monitoring efforts tied to artificial nesting structures are key for understanding the status of local bird populations. 

In this webinar, Robyn Bailey of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s NestWatch project will share the importance of artificial nesting structures like nest boxes and platforms, as well as details about the specifications that different avian species require. Then, we will launch our Artificial Nesting Structure Challenge, sharing the categories and criteria to include in your nesting structure this season. 

What you’ll learn: 

  • The value of building artificial nesting structures on corporate sites 
  • The specific habitat and nesting needs of various avian species 
  • The importance of monitoring avian projects and getting involved in citizen science initiatives 

Who should take this webinar: 

  • Corporate conservation sites looking to start avian projects 
  • Existing avian project teams who want to strengthen their nesting resources 
  • Anyone interested in learning more about the nesting needs of birds


  • Robyn Bailey, NestWatch Project Leader, Cornell Lab of Ornithology
