Bird Banding Demonstration

The sun was shining Saturday September 29th for our fall Bird Banding Demonstration.  Thanks to bird bander, Brian Pomfret, for sharing his humour and wealth of knowledge about our feathered friends.

Brian, along with the help of his family set up 5 fine mist nets along different trails to capture the birds.  The first bird of the morning was a fiesty blue jay that Brian measured, weighed (upside down in a can), calmed and passed to a willing guest to hold and release.

 

During the morning there was a total of 17 birds banded:

1 Ovenbird

3 Black -capped Chickadees

9 Field Sparrows

4 Goldfinches
