The Art of Hawk Banding

October 01, 2020

Counting raptors helps us to understand their migration routes, but banding them can tell us many stories about them. Join us as we welcome licensed bird banders from Braddock Bay Raptor Research in Rochester NY & Cedar Grove Ornithological Research Station in Wisconsin as they explain the process and value of banding birds of prey. You will also get a special tour of a raptor banding blind at Braddock Bay!
