This data release contains three tables of information on behavior and productivity of greater white-fronted geese nesting near Point Lonely, Alaska, 2013-2014: transcriptions of nest photographs obtained by time-lapse photography at 1-minute intervals in 2013 and 2014, and characteristics of nests monitored with cameras and via periodic nest visits during 2013-2014. Data were collected as part of the USGS Changing Arctic Ecosystems Initiative to understand the effects of industrial and researcher disturbance on Arctic-nesting geese.
