Rob writes: Eric is a little busy right now learning how to band birds with the Idaho Bird Observatory at Lucky Peak outside of Boise but he has had a chance to send me a few photos of the awesome birds he is seeing! The banding season started just a few days ago and Eric is having a great time. The project on Lucky Peak has been going on since 1993 and is IBO's longest running and most well-known research and education efforts. Eric will be up at the peak until October 15th so be sure to stop in and observe some of the banding if you are in the area! You can learn more about visiting the site on the IBO website.
