Questions and Answers about Wild Birds

Question of the week:

What is bird banding?

A.  In short, bird banding involves placing a small metal band on the leg of the bird. The band is numbered and information about the bird, the date captured and its location is recorded, along with the band number. If the band is later recovered, the number can be traced back to the initial information. This can help scientists learn about bird migration, the age of the bird and more.
