Diane VanLandingham owns ranch land near LaJunta, CO, and has permitted bird counters with Bird Conservancy of the Rockies onto her land to survey bird species and count their populations.

She's an enthusiastic participant in a new bird-counting program that provides higher quality data on bird populations and records information on the plants making up a local habitat. Jeff Birek is a bird counter and team manager with the Conservancy. He talks about the work of documenting bird populations.
