Meet a wild bird

Written by 

An ongoing volunteer opportunity offers the chance to get an up-close look at the songbirds of Western North Carolina, with volunteers needed to help scientists collect data throughout the summer. 

Dates remaining for this summer are:

Cowee Mound in Macon County: July 14, July 23, Aug. 2. 

Kituwah Mound in Swain County: July 17, July 26, Aug. 4. 

Welch Farm in Clay County: July 22, July 30, Aug. 8. 

Big Bald Banding Station in Madison County: July 21, July 29, Aug. 6. 

Sampling runs from 6 a.m. to noon each day, with volunteers welcome for any or all of that timeframe. Dates are subject to change based on weather, so RSVPs are important. Directions to banding locations are on the SARR website. 

In addition to hosting individual volunteers, SARR also does free educational programs by request at its data collection sites. 

SARR’s breeding bird monitoring work is funded by Mainspring Conservation Trust through a grant from the Cherokee Preservation Foundation. Other sponsors of the work include the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians, the Franklin Bird Club and the Highlands Plateau Audubon Society.
