    We have many birds building nests in our yard but I never want to bring them in because birds return to their nests.

Stacked on top of a book. In that same spirit, Beals is looking to make another book chronicling the nests of birds that are categorized as endangered, critically endangered, near threatened, or extinct in the wild.

    Migratory birds have separate ranges for their breeding and wintering activities, whereas “resident” birds live in the same region year-round. Nests found early in the spring tend to belong to non-migratory residents, while migrants return and breed later in the spring and summer. Others are working to design artificial platforms to keep the birds away from electrical equipment. One Ohio utility uses drones to survey their equipment for active nests. Complicating the problem is that the birds remain committed to their nest site and territory even after disaster strikes.
