BIRD RINGING AT THE PLEGADIS FOUNDATION

Categories: news_home,news2019

This year, the Delta Birding Festival offers a new activity of bird ringing open to the public in which participants will be able to know first-hand how this bird marking technique works. They will learn the process that goes from capturing the bird with special traps, placing the ring on the bird’s leg, gathering of biometric data for scientific analysis and releasing the bird, fresh and ready to fly.

At the heat of autumn migration, the vegetation and the small pond in the grounds of Plegadis, located among rice fields, is a lure for small birds on migration. Don’t forget your camera, because you will have them very, very close!
