The Missouri River and its adjacent wetlands are a major corridor for migrating songbirds, raptors and waterfowl. Recognizing the need to monitor and catalogue this massive avian movement, Ethan Duke and Dana Ripper took their collective bird monitoring experience in 2009 and started the Missouri River Bird Observatory. The mission of this bunch of hard working biologists is to contribute to the conservation of Missouri's migratory and resident birds through scientific research and monitoring, community outreach and education.

Join us as Ethan Duke shares stories of their work in the Missouri wilds, his take on the state of our bird populations and the successes of their inspiring program.
