  Bird Banding and International Migratory Bird Day
   
Saturday, May 20, 2017; 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Wickiup Hill, Linn County Conservation

Migration brings new and colorful birds
who have spent the winter in southern
climates back to the Midwest as they fly
north to breeding grounds. Some remain
here in Iowa to nest and others travel
farther north, even to the Arctic Circle.
These migratory birds are facing more obstacles
to their survival each year. Citizen
scientists such as Rob Bradley contribute
to the knowledge of migratory paths by banding birds caught at Wickiup Hill. Visitors may be surprised with special views of spring migrants such as warblers and summer tanagers.
While birds are banded, weighed and then measured, closeup views of feather colors and behaviors can be observed. To celebrate International Migratory Bird Day, activities for
children will take place during the morning, which will highlight the importance of international efforts to conserve birds
through agreements, laws, treaties, and collaborations. Cost: $2.50/adult, $1/child 16 and under, or $5/family.
