Last Saturday we went to a bird banding demonstration. In talking with the banders, we learned that we could observe their actual field work when they set up at Rollins Savanna today. Yippee! I'm really looking forward to it!
Bird banders attach small numbered and/or colored bands to birds as an aid to research. Bird banders are known as bird ringers in parts of Europe (I can never remember who calls them which term, they both sound natural to me). The highlighted shirts for this week have all been designed just for bird banders!
