Tuesday Group-Tour of Burke Lake Bird Banding Station

Tuesday, October 15, 2019 6:42 PM | Steve Jerant (Administrator)

JAS members came out of the morning frost to a beautiful day visit to Burke Lake Banding Station. This site is managed by MSU and is doing ongoing bird banding studies.  It's a great place to see birds up close and bird science being done in the field.  Kristy Taylor, education and outreach coordinator, walked us through two sets of mist nets used to capture the birds. 

This ongoing project depends on grant funding and birders like YOU.  Information on the station and how you can contribute is available at:  MSU Bird Observatory
