April 2024 Visit to the Trevor Lloyd-Evans Banding Lab - POSTPONED TO FRIDAY, APRIL 19TH

Updated: Apr 18

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED TO FRIDAY, APRIL 19TH DUE TO HIGH WINDS ON MANOMET POINT.


Have you ever seen a bird up close? Do you want to learn how scientists keep track of


individual birds? Join the Mass Young Birders Club for a bird banding demonstration at Manomet Bird Observatory!

At Manomet, scientists put bands on birds to study bird

behavior, and the health of bird populations around the world. To band the birds, scientists must catch them first! We will visit the Manomet banding lab and get an up-close look at the birds as they are being banded -- plus, we'll get to release them back to their natural habitat.


If time allows, we will finish the morning with a walk to our bird blind and do some birding around our property! We can't wait to see you there!


As always, this event is free, but registration is required.

If you are not an MYBC Club Member, you can sign-up here: MYBC Sign-up Forms
