Bird banding program at Lake Red Rock

The Pella Chronicle

---- — Saturday, October 26

7-10 a.m.

Red Rock Visitor Center

Join Nelson Hoskins, area birdwatcher and licensed bird bander, to experience what the science of bird banding is all about! Mist nets will be set up around the visitor center to capture small birds which will then be fitted with numbered leg bands to track their movements (if recaptured at some point in the future). Come check out the thrill of seeing live birds “in hand” as they are banded for future research!
