Join us on Saturday September 29 for our annual Bird Banding Morning and Fall Hikes at Crieff Hills from 8:30am to noon.
Come and watch the birds as they are banded and enjoy a hike on our trails. Drop by the picnic shelter anytime during the morning. No charge, but donations are appreciated. Bring the whole family!
What happens at a Bird Banding event?
Migrating birds are caught in fine mist nets by a professional bird bander who then weighs and measures the birds before fitting their leg with a thin metal band that has an identification number engraved on the band. This information helps to gather information about how long birds live and where they travel in order to better focus conservation efforts.
