From mid-September through October, banders and research assistants share their experiences in bird banding and their knowledge of birds of prey with interested visitors. These presentations are informal and offer plenty of opportunity for questions and discussion. Whenever possible, banded raptors, ready for release, are brought to the demo to provide first hand observation of these magnificent birds.


Demonstrations may be cancelled due to inclement weather.

Banding demonstrations can also be arranged for private groups. A donation of $100 is suggested in order to support our public program. If you are considering a presentation for your group, please contact us at
