Up Close & Personal With Wild Birds

May 18 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm

Have you ever looked a bird in the eye? You could do this if you swing by Colored Sands Forest Preserve to visit Sand Bluff Bird Observatory. We welcome visitors who are curious about wild birds and the work we are doing to monitor them. Watch as volunteer scientists capture, identify, and band migrating birds of all colors and sizes. In addition to the one-of-a-kind wildlife experience, take a walk through the pristine habitats including the beautiful blooms of the wild lupine. In rainy or windy conditions this event will be cancelled. If you are uncertain, you can call SBBO on Saturday morning at (815) 629-2671 to confirm that bird banding is happening.
