Bird Banding

Join us for an early morning bird banding session. This is limited in size due to space and bird stress. Wild Spirit Education participates in bird banding throughout the year. Bird banding is where we capture songbirds in mist nets and place metal bands on their legs to research them. More information will be given at the session. Although we band for 6 hours beginning at sunrise, you do not have to stay for the entire time. The busiest net runs are within the first few hours. Please do not sign up and cancel at the last minute.

    This was a great opportunity to see native songbirds up close and to learn about the process of banding. Paul and Bev patiently and thoughtfully answered the many questions of participants. They gathered many statistics on each bird and demonstrated the process of measuring and examining the specimens without harming them. Everyone got a chance to release a bird. It was wonderful to be outside so early in the morning and to be hiking around in the misty, natural setting.

    I have an appt. for my car problem at 8am in Arcade, if I come @6am, how long will it take to get to Arcade? Not sure I can do both.

      We are 2 miles outside of Arcade. Depending on who your mechanic is, figure about 10 minutes.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
