Seven Islands State Birding Park is proud to share this one-of-a-kind experience with park visitors. Hummingbird banding sessions provide fascinating opportunities to get up close and personal with wild hummingbirds.

The tour is guided by Seasonal Interpretive Ranger Stephanie Mueller, and the banding session is led by master bander, Mark Armstrong and a group of dedicated KTOS volunteers.

Visitors should arrive at the Bluebird Barn at 8:30 am.
Stephanie will meet you at the barn to lead you on an easy ~1 mile hike to the banding site.

Please remain with Stephanie, as they will be your guide through the banding process. She will be available to answer any questions that you may have regarding the banding process and research, the birds, or the park.

Every banding session will produce different results as migrants and resident birds move through their life cycles.

It is recommended that you wear good walking shoes or boots, weather appropriate clothing, and we suggest you bring along water and a snack.

Dogs are not allowed during banding sessions. Bird safety is of the utmost importance.
