BANDING BIRDS IN CENTRAL FLORIDA

Central Florida is in the midst of a building boom in which large tracts of land are converted to residential and commercial uses. As these forests are converted to buildings, birds are concentrated in the remaining prime areas, forced onto less desirable habitat, or locally eliminated.

Removing a Redstart from the mist net.

Staff at Wekiwa Springs State Park initiated a project in 1994 to band birds and collect data on both migrating and resident bird species. Data collected contributes to migration route knowledge by recaptures at our station and possible recaptures elsewhere. Other goals of the project are to educate the public on migratory birdlife, as well as birds in general, and demonstrate the importance of woodlands and fields for the conservation of bird species.
