Songbird Banding Times

The following are operating times for the Lucky Peak songbird banding project. We open nets at sunrise, but do not have birds ready to band and show the public until after we check the nets for the first time (at least 40 minutes after sunrise). You don’t need to arrive first thing in the morning; any time between 40 minutes after sunrise and 4.5 hours after sunrise is ok, but the action is usually best in the first half of the morning. We close nets 5 hours after sunrise

Plan to arrive about 40 minutes after sunrise if you would like to see the first birds of the morning.
