Bird Banding

Bird Banding at SUNY Oswego’s Rice Creek Field Station was an on-going event 2007 through 2014.  Master bird bander Jim Keefer, a SUNY Oswego alumnus, volunteered to conduct this bird population ecology research and taught others about resident and migrating birds in our area.  Visitors joined to observe and helped with the banding, often having hands-on experience with the birds during the process.  Enjoy the bird banding video from the summer of 2009.


As of Fall 2014, over 1100 birds have been banded at Rice Creek..
