Spring Bird Banding

April 12, 2014 @ 7:00 am - June 7, 2014 @ 4:00 pm

Sand Bluff Bird Observatory

Spring Bird Banding

Saturdays in April & May 7:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Sundays in April & May 8:00 a.m. – Noon

Colored Sands Forest Preserve

Sand Bluff Bird Observatory is one of the largest small-bird banding operations in the country that is open to the public. Sand Bluff is, and always has been, run entirely by volunteers who band birds, serve as guides for visitors, and present educational programs. Although Sand Bluff is a research facility, education is also a high priority. Spring bird banding will take place each weekend in April through the end of May. If the weather is “iffy,” call 815-629-2671 before coming – often this is when we catch the most birds! See birds up close as you observe experienced volunteers check the nets, and band and release migrating birds. Open to the public, free/donations appreciated to help purchase nets and equipment to run the banding station. Later in April, watch the birds, then take a hike and look for spring wildflowers in the woods at Colored Sands Forest Preserve! If you’re interested in volunteering at Sand Bluff, please contact Lynda at 815-629-2781. Individual and group visits to Sand Bluff are welcome. For more information, or to schedule a group visit, contact Lisa at 815-621-0607. For other information check Sand Bluff’s website at www.sandbluff.org. For a map, go to the Forest Preserve’s website at www.winnebagoforest.org. Also, save the date! Sand Bluff’s annual Bird Fest will take place Mother’s Day weekend, May 10 and 11, 2014.

If your thesis advisor has writing application essays not yet obtained approval for the study, you will need to submit a proposal to the irb.
