Visit Joppa Flats' Bird Banding Station on Parker River National Wildlife Refuge and observe the bird banding process. Mass Audubon scientists capture, evaluate, and release migrant songbirds while you learn about migration and habitat use. Don't miss this rare opportunity -- the station operates only during the height of migration in spring (April and May) and fall (September and October) and is very weather dependent.

Instructions and Directions:

Meet at Joppa Flats Education Center. Bring binoculars and cameras. Dress for the weather.
