Bird banding demonstrations
October 19 @ 7:00 am - 11:00 am
An event every week that begins at 7:00 am on Saturday, repeating until October 26, 2019
Have you ever had the opportunity to see a wild bird up close? Sugarloaf Cove Nature Center is participating in bird research by banding birds. This gives us a chance to figure out things like how to tell the difference between males and females, learn how long they live, and see if they migrate to places south and return to the same place to nest again. All of these are stories that the birds we band have the potential to tell.
Stop in and see what’s happening with the birds at Sugarloaf. Weather dependent, rain or excessive wind may cause the banding session to be cancelled. Call the Cove at 218-663-7679 to check. (Please note: staff may not be able to answer the phone immediately, as they may be out banding birds.)
