Hummingbird Banding Sessions
July 13 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 4:00 pm on Saturday, repeating until September 28, 2019
One event on July 25, 2019 at 4:00 pm
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.
