Bird Banding at the Crown Point State Historic Site

Crown Point State Historic Site welcomes the return of Crown Point Banding Station recording migration data on site for its 46th year. Due to the location under the Atlantic Flyway, the site is a premiere location for viewing birds migrating north for the season. Watch as this experienced team of citizen scientists net hundreds of birds, identify species and record their songs. Viewing tables are set a safe distance from the workstations enabling the public to observe the banders at work. Stop by and see nature at its most mysterious in action. Keep posted for our live stream from the station, provided by New York State Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation.

The banding station will be in operation from Friday, May 7 th – Friday, May 21st from 6am – 6pm. A small selection of events will be held in concert with the banding station activities, rain or shine.
Registration required, please email Masks and social distancing will be required and observed.
