Come with us to a birdbanding 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.
