Researchers put bands on birds to identify and keep track of individual birds. Each band is inscribed with a unique set of numbers. Master Bird Banders encourage and promote bird banding as a useful tool in the study of the biology and migration of birds. Data from banded birds can provide useful information about migration, behavior, lifespan, reproductive success, and trends in population over time.

Join Walt Sakai, Master Bird Bander, as he enlightens and updates us on his many years of experience of banding birds in Zuma Canyon. It’s sure to be informative and fun!
