Bird Banding at Put-in-Bay
September 13 - September 17
Master bird bander Tom Bartlett and his wife Paula Bartlett will be on the islands this fall for bird banding. All activities noted below are open to the public. They ask that visitors maintain social distancing. Wearing of masks by visitors is encouraged. Check www.lakeerieislandsconservancy.org for any covid related 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!
