Noah Strycker takes us deep into a 1-year birding quest to see half of the world’s birds. His story involves blood-sucking leeches, chronic sleep deprivation, airline snafus, breakdowns, mudslides, floods, war zones, ecological devastation, conservation triumphs, common and iconic species, and scores of passionate bird lovers around the globe!
Conservation Birding Tours combine world-class birding with science education to raise awareness of continentally-important bird areas. In March 2019, Bird Conservancy led a trip to West Mexico to explore the abundant and diverse avifauna of this unique region. Today’s post shares some highlights from this once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Parents and children ages 7 and up can join Bird Conservancy educators and Barr Lake State Park rangers for a day of learning basic canoeing and birding skills, which will culminate with a guided canoeing tour around the north end of the lake to see what birds can be observed while on the water!
Participants are encouraged to bring their own canoe, kayak, and binoculars to utilize during the program. Loaners of each can be reserved prior to the program on a first-come, first-serve basis. *Note: A parent/guardian must stay with child(ren). Limited space.
Pack a lunch to enjoy a picnic on the shore after the program!
Come join us for our annual Bald Eagle hike! We will be at Barr Lake State Park learning about the habitat and lifestyle of our Bald Eagle’s, and then we will grab our binoculars and look to the skies to find them!

Every year, the community of Karval in eastern Colorado comes together to celebrate the return of Mountain Plover to their fields, inviting birders from around the world to join in the moment and experience local hospitality and culture.

Come join us at the Bird Conservancy of the Rockies for a week of birding and learning! As the birds prepare for spring migration we will learn why birds migrate back from their wintering grounds, and what it takes for them to survive. Campers will refine their birding skills along our local trails, learn what resources migrating birds need in order to survive through fun and interactive games, and much more! Come and make a new flock of friends at bird camp!
