Live Bird Banding with Frank Gallo
Join author of Birding In Connecticut and licensed master bird bander Frank Gallo for a special opportunity to observe the process of bird banding. The process of safely capturing wild songbirds, placing a metal band on their leg with a designated number and releasing them helps ornithologists to track their movements and assess conservation needs. You will get to see how this process is carefully done as to not hurt the birds and observe some of our special migratory bird species up close!
FRANK GALLO is a leading expert on where to find birds in Connecticut and has led birding expeditions all over the world. Frank is a tour leader for Sunrise Birding, an international birding tour company, is a member of the Connecticut Avian Rare Records Committee, and a federally licensed master bird bander.
