We're collecting information from the public on active bird nests in Wyoming and eastern Idaho. These nest sites may be used as foster nests for orphaned or displaced birds. Young birds have the best chance at survival if they are raised by wild parents. Fortunately, raptors and many other birds will adopt young birds if they are placed into their nest and close in age to the other young. The information you provide in the form below could help an orphaned or displaced bird get a second chance at life in the wild!
Photos of the nest and birds are very helpful. Photos can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line: nest info photos for database
Note: We will not share the nest information with the public. We will only share it internally and with our partners at the Wyoming Game and Fish Department and Idaho Department of Fish and Game as we work together to release young birds back into the wild. We also recommend that you keep nest information discreet so that the birds can raise their young without too much disturbance.
