September Bird-Banding Stats


    NJMC naturalist Mike Newhouse and a small bunch of great volunteers have been busy banding birds on or near the closed Erie Landfill as part of a larger research project aimed at creating  more habitat for threatened and endangered avian species.

   One of the stars of September: the threatened Savannah Sparrow (above). More than 150 were banded last month. We also banded 50 Indigo Buntings.

   Many of our Tuesday Teaser close-up photos were taken of these banded birds.
