Free public birding trip with Washington Crossing Audubon Society (Sept 23): Bird Banding at Featherbed Lane
Join Washington Crossing Audubon Society (www.washingtoncrossingaudubon.org) at 8 AM on Sunday, September 23, for a free, public birding trip at the Featherbed Lane Banding Station. Led by Mark Witmer and Hannah Suthers, this unique field trip will expose you to the ongoing research conducted by Hannah Suthers and her volunteers for over 30 years (hopewell-birds.freehostia.com). You will see the entire process of bird banding and learn what information is obtained. We are likely to see a variety of species, including warblers, thrushes, wrens, and Hannah's favorite, the catbird. Note that registration is required, and limited to 12 persons: Call Lou Beck at (609) 737-0070 to register.
Directions: Registered participants will meet at Featherbed Lane, just north of Hopewell. From Rt. 518 in Hopewell, turn north on Greenwood Avenue and drive approximately 1.5 miles. Turn right onto Featherbed Lane and go about 0.5 miles to the banding area, and park along the right side of the lane.
