You can also use Cornell’s NestWatch site to record nests. The information isn’t shared with the public to keep the nesting birds safe.

Got video, photos and recordings. Wonder how many of the big box stores have nesting Ravens. Here is my eBird list with the photos, recordings and video.

If you see a bird on a nest and it flys off before you can get a photo, you can still submit a photo of the nest, since you know the nest is associated with the bird. Here is the wording on the eBird help and the link to it. So, I included photos of the nest on the list above.
