The Fort Morgan Bird Banding Program


On May 1, 2021, the Fort Morgan Bird Banding Program was unveiled at the Fort Morgan State Park in Colorado. The program will provide bird enthusiasts the opportunity to observe, identify and learn about the birds in their area. The program is a collaborative effort between the Colorado Bird Observatory and the Colorado State Parks.

The program will involve the banding of birds with identification bands attached to their legs. This will allow for the tracking of birds throughout their lifetime. The birds will be weighed and measured, and any other pertinent information will be taken. This information will be used to better understand the population, migration patterns, and habitat preferences of the birds in the area.

The program will also involve the collection of data on the bird species present at Fort Morgan. This data will be used for research and conservation efforts. It will also be used to help inform park management decisions.

The Fort Morgan Bird Banding Program is a great opportunity for the local community to get involved in bird conservation and research efforts. It is also a great way to learn more about the birds that call Fort Morgan home. The program is open to anyone who wishes to participate, and there are many volunteer opportunities available. If you are interested in learning more about the program, you can contact the Colorado Bird Observatory or the Colorado State Parks.
