This is a lesser known activity but of great scientific and pedagogical interest. The ringing of birds is a process of capture, marking, study and subsequent release. A good opportunity to get to know the birds that pass through this region every year!
Participants will be divided into two groups of 15 people. Each group will do the session with a different monitor.
Participants must bring their cars from the meeting point to the bird ringing site. We suggest that participants share cars so that the lowest possible number of vehicles is used.
Participants in this activity must respect the following rules to ensure the birds wellbeing:
- Keeping a safe distance of 2 meters around the mist netting area and not running near the nets;
- Parents should help their children follow these rules.
Monitors may ask the participants who do not comply with these rules to leave the area, to ensure birds safety.
