In the flap of a wing, Bird Conservancy of the Rockies’ 2018 Bird Camps are officially over! This summer we hosted over 140 campers, ages 4-17, from all over Colorado. It was a summer filled with laughter, seeing old friends and making new ones, learning and—of course—lots of birds!
With over 1,400 birds banded this season and 64 species recorded, the 2015 fall migratory season at Bird Conservancy of the Rockies’ Barr Lake Banding Station was “epic” for both birds and kids. Nearly 1,400 students and over 400 adults visited the station. Experiences varied from preschoolers taking their first-ever field trip on a bus to ornithology students from nearby universities beefing up their bird identification skills.
