Virtual Bird Fest – How We Study Migratory Birds

Saturday, May 8 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Many migratory birds fly hundreds or even thousands of miles twice every year to travel to their breeding and wintering grounds. How do scientists study these nomads?

At the San Francisco Bay Bird Observatory, we run the Coyote Creek Field Station where we study birds by banding them. In this family-friendly program, learn what bird banding is, how it works, and what we can learn from this process. We’ll show you what real banding tools look like! We will also touch on some other ways we study the amazing migratory birds that pass through the San Francisco Bay Area!

This program is recommended for kids and their families. Questions? Contact Sirena Lao at slao@sfbbo.org.

This program is part of Virtual Bird Fest, a celebration of World Migratory Bird Day with our partners at the San Francisco Bay Wildlife Society and Don Edwards SF Bay National Wildlife Refuge! Check out all the activities from May 6th-9th at https://virtualbirdfest.eventbrite.com. Thanks to Cargill for their support that allows us to participate!
