Migration Madness: Bird Banding Demonstration
SATURDAY’S BIRD BANDING IS CANCELLED BECAUSE OF THE WEATHER BUT SUNDAY’S IS STILL ON!
Sunday, May 20
Master banders Judy Richardson and Kathy Van Der Aue, and their team, will show you how bird banding works. Get an up-close view as the team searches the sanctuary for migrants, gently catches them, records their measurements and safely releases them. (Visitors may get to release a bird, too.) Birdcraft is one of the longest-running licensed banding stations in the Northeast.
This is a Migration Madness event. Migration Madness is the Connecticut Audubon Society’s statewide celebration of the birds of Connecticut. This event is great for Bird-a-thon participants! Learn more here.
Weather permitting. Admission is free. Donations to support the Connecticut Audubon Society are welcome. Pre-registration is required as each session is limited to 20 participants.
