Everybody Counts, TedX featuring Sparrow Swap

Hi Everyone,

It’s a busy time of year here! Some of the Sparrow Swap team was in St. Paul, Minnesota last week at the Citizen Science Association conference getting inspired and learning from other citizen science projects. I’m currently in Lexington, Kentucky learning more about house sparrows from Dave Westneat at the University of Kentucky. I’ll be sure to fill you in on what I’m learning. Back at the Museum we have new people joining the Sparrow Swap Team for the summer we hope to introduce to you soon. We are gearing up to process and curate the eggs that are arriving the Museum day by day. Thanks again to everyone who has sent eggs so far!

In even more exciting news, Caren Cooper, the lead researcher of Sparrow Swap, gave a talk last month at a TedX Greensboro that features the project.


We hope your nestboxes have been busy with successful native bird nestlings and fledglings! 🙂
