PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Ever wonder about the birds that migrate through Colorado in the spring?  Or how that pretty warbler differs from other species of songbirds?  Watch as ornithologists Meredith McBurney of the Rocky Mountain Bird Observatory and Andrew Doll of the Denver Museum of Nature & Science catch a variety of birds in mist nets, obtain useful biological information, and release them back into the wild. More than 100 species of birds have been safely captured and released at this banding station; now you can see first-hand the techniques scientists use to study these amazing creatures. Broadcasting live from the field if weather permits.
