2019 July Hummingbird Banding Sessions at San Pedro House



Hummingbird Banding at San Pedro House

Up to 10 species of hummingbirds use the green corridor of the San Pedro River as a freeway between their tropical winter retreats and their northern nesting grounds. The public is invited to get a close-up look at these tiny travelers as staff and volunteers from the Southeastern Arizona Bird Observatory capture, band, weigh, measure, and release them as part of long-term studies of the birdlife of this vital migration route.

Banding sessions will be held on most Saturdays, from 4 pm to 6 pm at San Pedro House, 9800 E. Highway 90 (7 miles east of Sierra Vista at the San Pedro River).  The public is welcome to observe banding sessions at no charge, but donations are gratefully accepted. Hummingbird "adoptions" may be available; proceeds support SABO's hummingbird research.

For more information contact the Southeastern Arizona Bird Observatory call or visit the website.
