Our Banding Sites

We band at two sites within Presque Isle State Park, and in general we try to alternate between them. Go to this link for more details:

Niagara Boat Launch site:
This is the location where bird banding has occurred since 1960. It is wooded and has grown up quite a bit since the early days. There are species we catch at this site that we rarely if ever catch at Fry's Landing.

Fry's Landing site:
This site was added in 2008 and is located much farther out on the peninsula. The habitat is more brushy, less wooded. Total captures tend to be higher at this site.
