FeederWatch returns to Martha Stewart TV

April 1, 2011

Project FeederWatch’s David Bonter returned to Martha Stewart’s television show in March to talk about bird nests and eggs–just in time for spring! The two segments featured an array of nests and eggs from the Cornell University Museum of Vertebrates with David highlighting the unique characteristics and the natural history of the birds.

Also featured on the show were a series of photos taken by participants in the Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s Celebrate Urban Birds project. The photos were submitted to the “Funky Nests in Funky Places” contest. The contest continues through June 1, so if you find a nest in an unusual location, a nest made from unexpected materials, or any other such oddity, submit a photo to the contest.

If you missed the live broadcast, you can view the show on the Martha Stewart website.
