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.
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.
Satellite Data Reveal Movement of Golden Eagles
The Bird Conservancy (formerly Rocky Mountain Bird Observatory) is assisting federal and state partners in studying Golden Eagles breeding in Nebraska and Colorado. We are learning where these eagles go using satellite telemetry. Find out where one Golden Eagle traveled during a 10-day period this June!
