Nancy Newfield: Hummingbird Bander

In August, 2002, Journey North science writer Laura Erickson went to Louisana to watch Nancy Newfield band hummingbirds. Nancy took us to John Owens's backyard and gave us a step-by-step glimpse into hummingbird banding. Each of these photos links to a short lesson about the process, with questions that will help you learn all about it! Click on any photo to learn about that process, or, to go through all of the steps in order, start right here at the beginning.
