Bird Banding in the Moquah Barrens
June 15 - 7:30 AM to 11:00 AM
Join experienced biologist Jim Bryce to continue a long-term study on the impacts of prescribed fires on local bird populations. Jim will set up three mist nets and walk everyone through the details of bird biology and banding—hopefully with birds in-hand! Meet at the Ino Bar on Highway 2 at 7:30 a.m. to car caravan on rough roads to the banding site. Banding will wrap up at 11:00 a.m. Dress for the weather. Bring snacks, water, and consider bringing a lightweight folding stool. You don’t have to be a certified Master Naturalist to participate! Any adult learners are welcome. Register with the Cable Natural History Museum by June 8 by calling 715-798-3890 or go to www.cablemuseum.org. Cost is $20 member/$25 non-member. Social distancing guidelines will be practiced.
