Bird Banding Event for the Purple Martins!

Thursday, July 2

12:30 pm - 2:30 pm

Our Purple Martin chicks are getting ready to fly. Before they do, Laurie Fortin from DEEP and a  team of volunteers will be banding the Purple Martins July 2, starting in the early afternoon outside the Nature Center. (They are banding at Greenwich Point at 9am and will come to Sherwood Island afterwards. Best estimate: 1pm)

The public and media is welcome to watch the chicks get aged, measured and banded.
