Spring 2018 Banding Dates Set

For everyone who loves to visit the banding station, it was a long fall without banding in Fall 2017.  The City of Dunedin didn’t reopen Hammock Park until mid-November with all the large trees that went down during the Hurricane.  One of the largest was right next to the banding station location.  It has really changed the canopy and it will be interesting to see if/how it affects the use of the park by migratory birds.

Here are the Spring 2018 Banding Dates:

March 25th

April 1st (Easter) – NO BANDING

April 8th, 15th, 22nd & 29th

May 6th

We hope to see everyone at the banding station this spring!




Post-Hurricane Update:  Fall Banding On-Hold

I just walked in the hammock park this morning after Hurricane Irma and it is a disaster!  There are several very large trees blocking the kettles trail and other trails in the park. I heard through a friend that the city of Duneden arborist says Hamic park will be closed for at least a month 😦

Stay tuned to this blog for an update when we might actually be able to start panting in the park this fall.
