Dauphin Island Bird Banding

  • This event has passed.

April 6, 2024 @ 8:00 am April 10, 2024 @ 2:00 pm

The Banding Coalition of the Americas (BCA) and Dauphin Island Bird Sanctuaries (DIBS) will host their 2024 annual spring bird-banding event on Dauphin Island, Alabama, on April 6-10, from 8 am to 2 pm daily. Designated an Important Bird Area, Dauphin Island is a critical rest stop for birds crossing the Gulf of Mexico on their way north for migration. It is one of the top North American spring migration destinations.

Join us for this free, family-friendly bird-banding event—held across from the Goat Tree Reserve, 700 Cadillac Avenue. Parking/picnic area/restrooms are located at Cadillac Square Park, 661 Bienville Blvd (follow signs to event site), 1 block across the street.

Visitors of all ages learn from researchers, ask questions, and can view and photograph the birds up-close as they are banded (then released.) See website for what to bring, group information, and further details.
