All About Banding the Purple Martins

There is a thriving Purple Martin colony beside the Nature Center. Each year, ornithologists visit to count the fledglings and gather information about the health of the colony. Last year, due to the pandemic, we recorded a presentation by Milan Bull and Tina Green as they visited the colony. You can view it on our YouTube channel.

This year’s counting and banding are scheduled for Wednesday, July 14 at 9 AM. You are welcome to attend and ask questions. Please note that the event is contingent on favorable weather conditions. Watch our website and Facebook page for updates.
