The Taos Land Trust has partnered with the Cornell Lab of Ornithology to enhance bird conservation along the Rio Fernando corridor in Taos, New Mexico.
Through 2021 and 2022, we will be collecting baseline birding data that will inform public bird habitat restoration demonstration sites with a particular focus on Rio Fernando Park (already a great birding location!) and other locations along the Rio Fernando corridor and in the Taos area. To achieve this goal, we will be working with community members, youth, and avid birders in community science bird data collection by providing workshops in eBird.com use, bird identification, and backyard bird habitat improvement. We will also work to increase public involvement in three annual regional bird counts. Read more here…
In January and February of 2021, we hosted four ‘introduction to bird watching and community science workshops’ online. The workshops were created and hosted by local bird expert Robert Templeton and the Taos Land Trust.
