Bird Banding at Middle Bass Island

September 25 - September 30

Bird Banding at Middle Bass Island

Master bird banders, Tom Bartlett and Paula Bartlett, will be on the islands this fall for bird banding. All activities noted below are open to the public. Check for any time/date changes. There are hundreds of songbirds that stop on their migration south to feed on the abundant insect resources of the Lake Erie Islands. Although not as colorful as in their breeding plumage in spring, the warblers, thrushes, and other birds are just as fascinating to see up close. The islands are an amazing place to witness this annual migration of birds, monarch butterflies, dragonflies, and bats!

September 25 – 29: dawn to 2pm
September 30: 6am to noon
