Bird-Banding Breakfast at Audubon Greenwich

Enjoy a kid-friendly breakfast on Sunday Aug. 3 and learn how scientists study bird migration, healthy and ecology using ‘bird id bands’ that are placed on birds, large and small, as they pass through Audubon Greenwich’s 285-acre sanctuary.

After breakfast and short learning session indoors, breakfast guests will venture into the field for an up-close bird encounter with Audubon bird banding experts, Sean Graesser and Katie Blake. Bird banding, or bird ringing, is considered essential to bird conservation.

According to the Audubon, the banding of millions of birds annually worldwide contributes greatly to the study of birds’ habits that can lead to a greater understanding of their needs. It is the process of attaching a small metal or plastic band around a bird’s leg in order to identify individual birds from the band’s unique number. The program is scheduled to run from 9 to 11 a.m. All ages are welcome, but registration is required by Aug. 1 because space is limited. Reservations can be made for $15 per member and $20 for non-members. Ages four and below are free. RSVP at [email protected] or 203-869-5272, ext. 239.
