SPECIAL EVENTS



It's officially fall, which means many of our local bird species are starting to head south for the winter! This is a crucial time for avian ecologists to learn more about bird demographics and movements. One tool for studying migrating birds is bird banding, where numbered bands are attached to birds' legs and logged into a database. If these birds are recaptured in later years, or at different sites, then researchers get a better idea of how long birds live and where they go. For our first event of the year, TWS will be heading down to the Vaseux Lake Bird Observatory to watch a demonstration of bird banding technique, and learn the importance of banding for tracking migratory birds. This event will take place on the morning of Saturday October 1st. Thank you to all of you who came out and made the day so awesome! To anyone who wasn't able to make it, we appreciate your interest, and stay tuned for more awesome events in the future!
