Brief Description of the Collaboratory :

 

CamClickr allows Internet visitors to enjoy and monitor nesting birds through online NestCams. These cameras, placed near nests, send real-time images of birds throughout their nesting cycle to a web site. CamClickr uploads these archived images in a fun, game-like atmosphere. The volunteer network of "behavioral scientists" tag photos and engage in the study of animal behavior in order to help answer interesting behavioral questions.
