This annual fall migration of songbirds occurs from July until early October, with September being the peak in songbird abundance. Birds captured include warblers, nuthatches, woodpeckers, thrushes, blackbirds, orioles, sparrows and more! Join our biologists for a morning in the woods to learn about the research being conducted on our feathery friends and see live birds up close and personal!
Hot drinks and snacks will be provided and between net checks our biologists will lead discussions about the importance of bird research, conservation, and how we can all make simple changes in our lives to become more environmentally friendly.
