Banding Day!

Today the chicks will get their ID bands and everyone will be able to watch on our live streaming video! We'll be showing the banding on the NESTBOX view beginning at 1 PM. The LEDGECAM view will remain as is, so folks will also be able to see the actions of Scout and Orville as we are getting the chicks out of the nestbox.

Even though the banding will begin at 1:00, we may need to access the ledge ahead of time to prep for the event. So, don't be surprised if you tune in earlier and the birds are agitated or you see us on the ledge. But, the actual banding won't begin until 1 p.m.

During the banding Division of Wildlife personnel will remain out on the ledge to perform various maintenance tasks, including cleaning the nestbox camera lens. Enjoy the show!
