Field Trip: Bird Banding at River Point

Saturday, October 3, 2015 7:00 am – 11:3- am

Please join Biodiversity Research Institute on site at River Point Conservation Area in West Falmouth for an interpretive demonstration of bird banding. BRI will be conducting mist net surveys for songbirds as part of our migration monitoring and invites you to join them to observe research methods and gain knowledge about identifying and aging birds in the hand. Guests should expect to observe the banding process, visit mist nets, and see birds in hand as they are released back to the wild. We plan time to explore the diverse 40-acre property bordering the Piscataquis River.

Meet at Hannaford in Brunswick at 7:00 a.m. to carpool. FMI contact Jack Collins at 373-0336.
