Bird Banding Laboratory

Science Center Objects

The Bird Banding Laboratory is an integrated scientific program established in 1920 to support the collection, archiving, management, and dissemination of information from banded and marked birds in North America. This information allows for developing effective bird science, management, and conservation. Since 1923, the lab has collaborated with the Canada’s Bird Banding Office to administer the North American Bird Banding Program and manage more than 82 million banding and encounter records.
