Fall Bird Banding


American Redstart

Last day – October 23

Take a much closer look at songbirds! We will be banding birds and monitoring the populations of songbirds that nest and travel through Sugarloaf Cove and adding to the growing research on North Shore birds. Learn more about the banding process and its importance in understanding the lifespan, movement, and productivity of songbirds. 

Stop in any time between 7:30 am and 11 am and see what’s happening with the birds at Sugarloaf.

Weather dependent, rain or excessive wind may cause the banding session to be cancelled or end early. Call the Cove at 218-663-7679 to check. (Please note: staff may not be able to answer the phone immediately, as they may be out banding birds.)
