DNR's Bald Eagle Bird Nest Monitoring Workshop April 2019

Oak Grove & Big Sioux Park, Sioux County

Saturday, April 13, 2019

This year, Sioux County Conservation is teaming up with the DNR to host Bald Eagle Bird Nest Monitoring Workshop. Workshop will be held on Saturday, April 13th at the Oak Grove Lodge from 9:30am-12:30pm. Training workshop focuses on some of Iowa’s more spectacular birds of prey such as Bald Eagles, Ospreys, and Peregrine Falcons. Volunteers are taught how to collect data on specific nesting sites around the state and submit pertinent data such as how many young birds fledge. “This data collection requires lots of patience and some good optics in order to watch the nest from a distance and not disturb the birds,” Shepherd indicates. Last year volunteers reported on over 150 Bald Eagle nests across the state.

Workshops require a $5 registration fee which pays for training materials, bird identification guide and certification costs. To register, please download and complete the registration form for the desired workshop found here and return it with the $5 fee per person, per workshop to: VWMP; Boone Wildlife Research Station; 1436 255th St.; Boone, IA 50036. Deadline for registration is April 5th. Attendance is limited to 15 people per workshop so first come, first served.

NOTE: A Frog and Toad Survey Training will be held in the afternoon on this same day. If you wish to sign up for both workshops, the total registration fee will be $8.
