Migration Monitoring

Measuring the timing, composition, and abundance of migratory songbirds at a site is an important first step at understanding population trends and recognizing opportunities for conservation. At River Point, we operate a bird banding station where we use mist nets to capture, band, and release migrating songbirds. Since 2011 we have handled more than five thousand individuals representing more than 70 species.
