Scientists in Action: Bird Brained
Ever wondered about the birds that migrate through your town each year, or what separates a blackbird from a blue jay? Come with us to a bird banding station and talk to real ornithologists from the Bird Conservancy of the Rockies and Denver Museum of Nature & Science while they catch birds in giant mist nets, study and observe each bird, and safely 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 conduct research about these amazing creatures. Broadcasting live from the field at Barr Lake if weather permits.
