Spring Bird Banding

Join us for bird banding at our long-term banding station, on-going since 1982. Observe federally licensed bird researchers collect vital data to inform our understanding of bird populations and the importance of Warner Parks for birds.

Depending on the number of birds and the number of trained volunteers assisting that session, we are happy to answer questions about the birds and banding and discuss data collected and bird banding tools. We have some amazing bird banding stories to tell! Of course, the safety of the bird is the most important part of banding, and if we are too busy with the birds and unable to talk, you are still welcome to observe quietly and enjoy watching the process. Kids are welcome!

Registration not required. Handicap accessible. Sessions will be canceled for rain, inclement weather, or unforeseen emergencies.
