Bird banding planned at Carpenter Nature Center on Aug. 26

Bird banding at the Carpenter Nature Center will be from 9 a.m. to noon on Friday Aug. 26. Have you ever wondered what bird banding is all about? This is your chance to see songbirds up close and to watch the experts band birds at Carpenter Nature Center. Bird banding records can help us learn how long the birds live, where they travel, when and where they migrate and many other interesting facts. Carpenter Nature Center has been banding birds for over 26 years and still meets weekly to capture, record, band and release songbirds. Donations of sunflower bird seed or suet will be greatly appreciated in lieu of a program fee.
