The data set provides information on the nesting ecology of grassland birds. Data were collected from 1996-2014 video surveillance of 206 nests of 17 bird species that nested in grasslands of three states within the United States (Wisconsin, Minnesota, and North Dakota) as well as Alberta, Canada. The data include number of nestlings that fledged from the nest, the time of first fledging relative to local sunrise, duration of the fledging period, and day length of the fledging date relative to the summer solstice.
