Fort Morgan Bird Banding Begins March 28

Bring your lawn chair for a front row seat at a yearly spectacle when thousands of neo-tropical migrants - songbirds - return to the first landfall from their winter homes in Central and South America. The Hummer/Bird Study Group, a non-profit organization founded by Bob and Martha Sargent, invites you to join them to observe their research up close and personal. The Hummer/Bird Study group gathers valuable information about the health, behavior and habitat of these migratory birds and visitors have the opportunity to touch, hold and release the birds.

Beginning March 28 and ending April 9 inside the grounds at historic Fort Morgan this family-friendly bird banding station is open to the public. Hours are from dawn until noon depending on the flow of migrant birds with early morning hours the best time for observation. The event is free however admission to the Fort is necessary to gain access to the banding station. The Fort Morgan admission fee is $5 for adults, $4 for seniors, $3 for children age 6-18 and free for children under 6.

Choose one of Meyer Real Estate's many beach houses or coastal condominiums in the Fort Morgan area to be near the action. Check our Hot Deals for the best bargain when you bring the entire family for this unique experience.
