Barnes Nature Center -Free Bird Banding Demonstration

175 Shrub Road , Bristol, CT

Saturday - May 23, 2015 - Ongoing from: 9:00am to 11:00am. Members:  $10.00/per person. Non-Members: $20.00/per person
Bird banding is a research technique that helps scientists keep track of the health of bird populations and learn more about their movements and habitat preferences.  Birds are caught in a mist net and data is recorded regarding their condition, weight, sex, etc.  They are then fitted with a uniquely numbered band that identifies them, if observed in the future. You will have a unique opportunity to see songbirds in the hand and close up and may have a chance to release them back into the wild.
