Hummingbird Banding Demonstration

Visit the Bird Sanctuary for a Hummingbird Banding Demonstration
Augusta, Mich. — Join bird-banding experts and Audubon Society of Kalamazoo members Brenda and Rich Keith from the Kalamazoo River Valley Bird Observatory for a Hummingbird Banding Demonstration at the W.K. Kellogg Bird Sanctuary on August 22. This will be a great event to learn about hummingbirds, and hopefully see them up close!
Hummingbird banding takes a great deal of skill, and we are lucky to have Brenda Keith, who is one of the only hummingbird banders in Michigan, leading this event. A banding demonstration will take place in the Sanctuary’s pollinator garden, accompanied by an informational slideshow in the auditorium on the research and data collected through hummingbird banding.
The program will be held at the Sanctuary from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. The cost of attendance for Sanctuary members is $5/adult, $4/student or senior, and $3/child. The cost for non-members is $7/adult, $6/student or senior, and $5/child. No registration is required.
The W.K. Kellogg Bird Sanctuary is located at 12685 East C Avenue, one mile north of M-89 and just west of 40th Street. To learn more, visit birdsanctuary.kbs.msu.edu, email birdsanctuary@kbs.msu.edu, or call (269)671-2510.
