Bird Banding Is Back!

We're two banding sessions into the season, and we've already had a handful (literally) of species visit our nets (the skulkers came out to play for sure!): White-crowned Sparrows, Bewick's Wrens, Hermit Thrushes, Lincoln's Sparrows, Bushtits, Spotted Towhees, Anna's Hummingbirds, and the list is growing! 

For our bird banding study, we are not only interested in migratory and over-wintering birds, but mainly in our resident/nesting bird species. Are they simply surviving or are they thriving? What does that say about the health of Debs Park ecosystems overall? Help us answer these questions as we collect data during our banding sessions every Tue morning from 7am-11am. Please RSVP to space is limited!
