Fall Banding

by Steve Torre on August 4, 2014

SBBO volunteers put up the mist
nets on Saturday, August 2 and began the regular weekend
banding schedule on Sunday, August 3.
Visitors are welcomed on Saturdays from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00
p.m. and Sunday mornings from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. Birds
are more active in the morning and less so in the afternoon
when they rest. Volunteers will invite anyone interested to
walk along with them on a designated net run as they check the
mist nets. Nets are checked, at a minimum, hourly. The safety
of the birds is the primary concern; therefore, weather conditions
such as heavy rain or excessive heat or cold dictate
whether banding takes place.
It is recommended that visitors call ahead to assure that volunteer
staff are present if weather conditions are “iffy” to avoid
a wasted trip to far northwest Winnebago County! Migration
usually ramps up after Labor Day, but birds are moving south
now.
