Birds will be captured, fitted with a numbered aluminum band, and released unharmed. If we are lucky, we may re-capture birds that were banded last year. You'll see how the birds are caught and handled and have a chance to see them closer than ever before. Birds are most readily caught early in the morning, so you'll have to get up when the birds do.
Meet at 8 a.m. at the entry gate to the sanctuary at 13030 Old Annapolis Road (just east of Detrick Road) in Mt. Airy. Limited/basic rest room facilities are available.
This event will be cancelled in case of significant rain or wind. Rain date: May 18th
This is a family friendly educational event you won’t want to miss!
