Great Backyard Bird Count

February 16, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm UTC+0

Join Bird Conservancy staff and volunteers as we participate in the Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC)! Hosted by Barr Lake State Park.

The GBBC was created in 1998 by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the Audubon Society. It was the first ever online citizen science project to collect data on wild birds and to display results in near real time.

Participants will be split in groups and lead by a Bird Conservancy staff or volunteer to count as many birds as they can around Barr Lake State Park. The final tallies will be entered into eBird and your fun and hard work will contribute to bird conservation science!

Saga of “Our” Red-tailed Hawk!

| Science | No Comments

Every year, our friends at Rocky Mountain Raptor Program in Fort Collins, CO receive over 300 injured, sick and orphaned birds. They are nursed back to health and more than 80% of them are released back into the wild. Last fall, bird banders at our Barr Lake State Park station enjoyed the opportunity to meet one of the recipients of their kindness in person!

We had a banner year at our banding station at Wildcat Hills State Recreation Area in Scotts Bluff County, Nebraska. 2020 proved to be our busiest season there to date. We set new highs for total banded birds and added several new species that had never been banded there before. All of this was while simultaneously adapting to meet health and safety guidelines that enabled visitors to experience bird banding firsthand in a safe way.
