Bird Banding─What’s it all about? This free program is for adults, teens, and children ages 8 and older.
Program Leader: Darlene Moore. Darlene McNeil Moore is a current sub-permitted bird bander in Connecticut and has held permits to band birds in Texas and Georgia. She has attended bird banding courses at Powdermill in Pennsylvania, Braddock Bay in Rochester, New York, Appledore Island in New Hampshire, and the country of Belize. She had the unique opportunity to hold every eastern wood-warbler in the hand. She is currently doing a Suffolk County Big Year and has held a top five position since January. She cannot wait to meet more birders in the field.
Darlene will be giving a presentation that is typically given during a bird banding demonstration. Topics covered will be: What is bird banding? Why band birds? What have we learned from bird banding? Superhero birds. How to band a bird. How to age a bird. The life cycle of birds. Parts of a bird (including specific wing topography). And some pretty pictures of the bird in the hand. There will be a Q and A after the program.
This is a free program.
