RMBO Migrates to Bird Conservancy of the Rockies
On Aug. 31, 2015, we changed our organizational name from Rocky Mountain Bird Observatory (RMBO) to Bird Conservancy of the Rockies. Our mission remains the same: We are committed to conserving birds and their habitats through science, education and land stewardship.
Finding My Calling at Camp
After graduating from college, volunteer Jennifer Meyers became a summer camp counselor for Bird Conservancy of the Rockies (formerly Rocky Mountain Bird Observatory). Jennifer writes about her experiences at camp in the Colorado high country and how she gained just as much from summer camp as the kids she mentored and supported.
IMBCR Survey Season Featured New Frontiers … and Lots of Rain!
Bird Conservancy of the Rockies (formerly Rocky Mountain Bird Observatory) and partners wrapped up their seventh season of surveys under the Integrated Monitoring in Bird Conservation Regions program, one of the largest breeding bird monitoring programs in North America. Seasonal biologist David Kramer offers highlights from a wet, snowy survey season.
Collaborating Across the Atlantic to Conserve Birds
The Bird Conservancy (formerly Rocky Mountain Bird Observatory) collaborated with a graduate student at Oxford University to study the impacts of natural gas well pads and their associated roads on the distribution of sagebrush-obligate songbirds. The student, Max Mutter, writes about the experiences leading up to the study and shares a key result.
