Hummingbird Banding Sessions 2021

April 10 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 4:00 pm on Saturday, repeating until May 29, 2021

Free

Up to 10 species of hummingbirds use the green corridor of the San Pedro River as a freeway between their tropical winter retreats and their northern nesting grounds. The public is invited to get a close-up look at these tiny travelers as staff and volunteers from the Southeastern Arizona Bird Observatory capture, band, weigh, measure, and release them as part of long-term studies of the bird life of this vital migration route.

The public is welcome to observe banding sessions at this site at no charge and without reservations, but donations are gratefully accepted. Hummingbird “adoptions” may be available; proceeds support SABO’s hummingbird research.

The banding station is located at the outdoor ramada at the San Pedro House visitor center of the San Pedro Riparian National Conservation Area, 7 miles east of Sierra Vista on Highway 90. Public restrooms are open and available.

Note: To protect our participants, volunteers, and staff during the coronavirus pandemic, a mask mandate and social distancing will be in effect for participation in the hummingbird banding sessions.
