Humming Bird Festival in September, Rockport, Texas
Humming bird banding is a valuable process in the study of the movement, survival and behavior of birds. The banding of hummingbirds is a carefully regulated process that must be performed only by trained and licensed banders.
The federal Bird Banding Laboratory (BBL) is administered by the United States Geological Survey, with a similar program operated by the Canadian Wildlife Service.
