How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Incremento de La Frecuencia de Captura de Psiloscops flammeolus y Aegolius acadicus Durante La Migración Otoñal Hemos estado anillando individuos de Psiloscops flammeolus y Aegolius acadicus durante la migración otoñal en Idaho desde 1998. Nuestras redes de niebla con señuelos auditivos se ubican dentro de bosques de Pseudotsuga menziesii con muy e...
Increased urbanization and supplementary feeding are implicated in driving the expansion of the range of the Anna’s Hummingbird (Calypte anna). In many areas this range expansion has been well described, but the recent expansion of the northeastern limit of the nonbreeding distribution, in winter in Idaho, has not yet been summarized. Using data fr...
Between 5 May and 19 June 2020, the Intermountain Bird Observatory (IBO) staff conducted avian point count surveys throughout Utah on Bureau of Land Management (BLM) lands as a part of the Integrated Monitoring in Bird Conservation Regions (IMBCR) program coordinated by Bird Conservancy of the Rockies and partners. We surveyed 36 transects overall:...
Between 3 May and 22 June 2019, Intermountain Bird Observatory (IBO) staff conducted avian point-count surveys throughout Utah on Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and National Monument lands as a part of the Integrated Monitoring in Bird Conservation Regions (IMBCR) program coordinated by Bird Conservancy of the Rockies and partners. We surveyed 55...
Each summer we monitor the abundance, breeding condition, and migratory timing of three hummingbird species that use the Boise National Forest during the breeding and migration season – the Black-chinned, Rufous, and Calliope Hummingbird. A more specific goal of this project was to join the Hummingbird Monitoring Network (HMN) and the Western Hummingbird Partnership to establish a study site within the breeding range of the Calliope Hummingbird. Before 2012, there was no HMN site in Idaho and furthermore no HMN sites within the breeding range of the Calliope Hummingbird. This was a gap in the network that the Intermountain Bird Observatory filled. Of note, both Rufous and Calliope hummingbirds are on the Partners In Flight Watch List. We are aiming to expand our monitoring into other areas of Idaho.
Since 2015 we have monitored songbird populations through standardized banding protocols during the breeding season and fall migration season at our Boise River Research Station, located in the greater Barber Pool Ecosystem. Our goal is to monitor populations of riparian obligate breeding birds and long-distance neotropical migrants, as these groups are facing numerous conservation threats.
In Idaho, Anna's Hummingbird numbers have increased in the fall and winter, particularly over the past decade. We have developed a winter banding program to monitor this population expansion
