Spring migration brings countless birds to Presque Isle State Park, an Audubon Important Bird Area and a great site for birdwatching. Spring also is when Audubon staff and volunteers perform bird banding at the park as part of population, migration and health research.
The banding program for this spring remains only partially funded. Audubon PA and the Presque Isle Audubon Society are working together to raise necessary funds, including through donations and ”Adopt-a-Bird” certificates.
To contribute, you can send a check to Audubon PA Banding, 301 Chestnut St, Meadville, PA 16335, or to PIAS Banding, 301 Peninsula Drive, Tom Ridge Environmental Center, Erie, PA, 16504.
