Today was about as good and big as it gets for one day at this banding station - 151 new birds of 26 species. The advantages of lots of stormy weather! And a great crew of volunteers! Here's the breakdown:
We will be open daily, WEATHER PERMITTING, through May 31, except for Memorial Day. We are opening nets at 6:30, and most days will have birds back at the station by 7:15. We aim to close by noon most days, earlier if it is very hot, very cold, or very windy. Registration is required for all weekend visitors; see the Denver Audubon website to sign up. Individuals may visit weekdays without registering before the school groups arrive, which is usually around 10 a.m.
