Event Info

On Sunday mornings in winter, Joppa's Bird Banding Station Manager Ben Flemer presents demonstrations on bird research and banding.

After capturing wild birds in the Joppa backyard, Ben brings them inside to measure, weigh, examine, and then release them. The unique band that Ben places carefully on each bird’s leg connects other bird researchers with the data he’s collected. Visitors can learn about backyard birds and why they’re here while watching scientific research in action.

No registration required. Since bird safety is dependent on weather conditions, this program will not be held in inclement weather. If in doubt, please call ahead to confirm that the program is on for the day.
