Bird Banding Demonstration Tuesday in Fairfield
Tuesday, October 22, 9 a.m. Pine Creek Open Space in Fairfield.
Join master bander Judy Richardson (a member of Connecticut Audubon Society's Board of Directors) and her team as they take bird banding on the road. They usually band at our Birdcraft Sanctuary but wanted to see if they could catch different migratory birds closer to Long Island Sound. You won't want to miss this opportunity to observe resident and migratory birds up close, as birds are caught in mist nets and banded for research.
The fee is $7. Call for reservations 203-259-6305 ext.109
Meet at Pine Creek Open Space at the gated entrance on Old Dam Road. If it is raining, the event will be postponed to Tuesday, October 29.
