Banding by Day and Night
Developed by Altacal Audubon Society Members Steve King, Raina King, and Dawn Garcia and sponsored by the Altacal Audubon Society. This exhibit gives us a close look at birds in hand with incredible detail, and shows the process of scientists gathering information about the birds.
Ongoing at the Janeece Webb Living Animal Museum.
About the exhibit:
In Banding by day, we emphasize two of our banding projects, 1) songbird monitoring on CSU Chico Butte Creek and Big Chico Creek Ecological Reserves to determine species richness, diversity, and population demographics, and 2) Ecology in Flight - our outdoor program for children.
In Banding by Night, we focus on our Northern Saw-whet owl migration monitoring program. This program has run every fall since 2005 for 6 weeks as the owls migrate to and through the Big Chico Creek Ecological Reserve. Dawn's owl website gives more information and pictures.
