Bald Eagle Watch Training

January 20 @ 10:00 am - 3:30 pm MST

Bird Conservancy is currently recruiting volunteers to participate in Bald Eagle Watch.  In partnership with Colorado Parks and Wildlife, staff and volunteers monitor Bald Eagles throughout Colorado, obtaining data that is needed for biologists to develop best practices for their conservation now and in the future, as the human population continues to grow.

What: Monitor and collect data on Bald Eagle nesting behavior and productivity. Report any disturbances that may impact nesting eagles. Information obtained helps wildlife managers and conservation groups ensure continued healthy populations of Bald Eagles.
When: Focus is on the breeding season, which is February to July.  Many volunteers continue to monitor their nests year-round.
Where:  Throughout Colorado.  This year, we are particularly interested in recruiting volunteers who would like to monitor birds in or near the following counties – Garfield, Routt, Eagle, Mesa, Summit, Grand, Gilpin and Park
Who: Anyone who can monitor designated nest(s) weekly for a minimum of one hour, fill out a data sheet and enter it 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
Training: Training, via ZOOM, will be held on Saturday, January 20, 2024, from 10 a.m. – 12 noon and 1 – 3:30 p.m.  Attendance is mandatory, but anyone interested who is unable to participate that day may view the training at a later time.
To sign up to participate or for more information:  E-mail [email protected] with your name, e-mail, phone number, and county.
