Bald Eagle Watch
|Goal||Monitor bald eagle nests throughout Colorado.|
|Task||Collect nesting data on bald eagles.|
|Where||Colorado, United States of America Colorado|
Bald Eagle Watch volunteers monitor various eagle nests across the Colorado Front Range to provide information to biologists on the nesting success of the Colorado Bald Eagle population.
From January to July, Bald Eagle Watch volunteers collect nesting data and record many aspects of the breeding cycle, including courtship, incubation, feeding of nestlings, and fledging of the juveniles.
Colorado is home to many resident and migrant Bald Eagles. This is a fantastic opportunity to continue monitoring the eagle population to ensure it remains viable.
