Science

Research is at the core of IBO’s mission. We work with partners throughout the Intermountain West to monitor and conserve breeding bird populations in six states (and counting!). Our three banding stations form the foundation for our migration monitoring work in Southwestern Idaho.

Long Term Monitoring

Research Stations

We have three research stations in Idaho where we do long-term monitoring work. These projects are open to the public, so be sure to come visit us soon.
