Birdathon – Bandathon
How many species of birds will be signing and displaying on Riveredge’s 450+ acres at the peak of spring migration? Let’s find out!
Witness the Riveredge bird banding station in action. See how resident songbirds are mist-netted and gently banded by licensed bird banders. Find out how their research is providing us with estimates of the number of resident and migrant birds who call the Center their home. Observers are welcome at any of the banding sessions (weather permitting). Signs will direct visitors to the banding stations.
We also encourage you to bird on your own and see how many species you can spot! This event is free, but we greatly appreciate donations to support the Noel J. Cutright Bird Club.
