Bandelier researchers to share birding data

Bird is the word at the Bandelier National Monument this fall.

For almost two decades Bandelier has participated in a multinational program, the goal of which is to determine how our feathered friends are doing in the world.

Bandelier is inviting the public to see the work in progress as it bands birds to learn more about them, their migration and their health. The monument will begin offering ranger-led visits to its fall bird banding site, just in time for fall migration to begin. Bandelier’s location along the southern end of the Rocky Mountains makes it a major flyway for birds along their migration routes.

Researchers at Bandelier have been collecting migratory bird data for 18 years and are excited to share the project with the general public, according to a news release. Meet a ranger at the Alamo Boundary trailhead for a chance to visit the bird banding station, learn more about the research being done at Bandelier, and maybe even meet a bird in person.

Bird banding visits are scheduled for 7:30 a.m. Friday, Aug. 13, Aug. 27, Sept. 10, Sept. 24; and 8 a.m. Friday, Oct. 8. Times are subject to change due to weather conditions.
