ONLINE EVENT –

Join the Landbird Conservation team on September 15 (rain date September 16) for a behind-the-scenes look into Manomet’s banding lab! You’ll meet this season’s banding staff and learn how banders ‘process’ a captured bird, from basic measurements to assessing molts and aging.
Bird banding is a type of long-term population monitoring that helps answer questions like: Where do birds go during migration? How long do birds live? How does climate change affect the timing of migration? The information collected from banding birds contributes to understanding bird biology and making informed conservation decisions to reverse declining population trends.
Manomet has been banding birds during spring and fall migration for over 50 years, maintaining one of the longest-running datasets on migration in North America. Spend an hour with Manomet’s Landbird Conservation team and have all your bird banding questions answered.
