The first round of bird banding demonstration occurred this past Saturday morning in Indanhead Acres in Tallahassee. Nine nets were opened and ten birds were captured. Species included Northern Cardinal, Carolina Wren, Wood Thrush, Red-eyed Vireo and Acadian Flycatcher.
Other great birds were observed in the area where nets were located and the potential is always there to capture those birds. Wilson's Warbler, Hooded Warbler, American Redstart, Scarlet Tangers, Rose-breasted Grosbeak, Cooper's Hawk and a Barred Owl to name a few.
We will be doing it all over again this upcoming Saturday, opening nets at around 7:30 am and keeping them open until at least 10:30, maybe longer if conditions and bird activity are ideal. Hope to see you there.

then walk south along the greenway until you run into the banding station.
