Bald Eagle Watch – Citizen Science Training
January 19, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm UTC+0
Bird Conservancy of the Rockies’ Bald Eagle Watch program was started in 1988 to monitor and help protect the Bald Eagle nest at Barr Lake State Park northeast of Denver. Now, citizen scientists with the Bird Conservancy monitor eagle nests across the Front Range to provide information to biologists on the nesting success of the Colorado population.

The training includes a guided walk to view Barr Lake’s Bald Eagles. Participants are reminded to dress according to the weather and temperatures.
What: Monitor and collect data on Bald Eagle nesting behavior and productivity. Report any disturbances that may impact nesting eagles. Data help wildlife managers and conservation groups ensure continued healthy populations of Bald Eagles.
When: February to July
Where: Colorado’s Front Range, from Brighton to Fort Collins
Who: Anyone who can monitor designated nest(s) weekly for a minimum of one hour, fill out a data sheet and enter into an online reporting system; can drive to nest site; enjoys monitoring either alone or with another person; and has a spotting scope or binoculars
