Join our researchers in the field as they study local species of sparrows! Our morning will be filled with sparrow searching, trapping, and banding. Learn about the different species of sparrows that winter in south Mississippi. Our activities will include field observations, pine savanna hiking, and mist netting observations. 

Dress for the weather and wear either rubber boots (preferably) or shoes that can get wet. The ground in the savanna is extremely uneven, so watch your footing. You may bring binoculars, birding field guides, water, and/or bug spray. 

Space is limited. Registration is required for this event.
