Whew! The dust has finally settled after two fun events to help raise funds in support of our conservation and education programs, the Wing Ding: Have a Brew for the Birds and our annual BBQ for the Birds. The BBQ grill has cooled down, the awards have been handed out, and the staff at RMBO has finally gotten the chicken wing sauce out from under their fingernails.

Royal Tern at Barr LakeA Royal Tern is a welcome and rare visitor at Barr Lake northeast of Denver and home to Rocky Mountain Bird Observatory’s headquarters. Since first sighted on July 29 by Steve Mlodinow, this tern has shown off its bright orange bill to many interested gawkers. Normally flying in the U.S. only along the eastern and California coastlines, this species has now been recorded in Colorado just three times. Males and females can distinguish each other, fortunately, but we humans can’t tell them apart without, ahem, invasive procedures.

At the training Diane Probasco from the U.S. Forest Service gave the RMBO surveyors a bear safety presentation and the opportunity to discharge inert bear spray canisters.
