Providence Birding Adventures
Next Adventure: Saturday, September 25; 8:30 - 9:30 am
Join naturalists from the Audubon Society of Rhode Island and the Providence Parks Urban Wildlife Refuge Partnership for a free bird banding demonstration in Roger Williams Park on Saturday, September 25, at 8:30 am. Learn about how bird banding helps with research on the life histories and migration patterns of birds, and stay for a guided bird walk after the demonstration if your time and interest permits.
Here are some specifics:
- We will send details on the exact meeting spot once you register. Registration is limited to 15 attendees so please register early so as not to miss out!
- The bird banding area and the trail for the walk are not easily handicapped accessible.
- To participate, please do wear a mask if you are not vaccinated or if you feel more comfortable doing so. If you are fully vaccinated, then you may attend without a mask, but we will still remain aware of how close we get to each other when looking for birds. Families with children who may not be able to be vaccinated, please feel welcome to join us!
- If you are able to bring your own equipment - binoculars and field guides – please do so. We will bring some extra binoculars and fold-out field guides so that we can limit sharing among participants.
- Dress for the weather and wear sturdy walking shoes.

Thanks to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife’s Urban Bird Treaty Program, and a partnership between the Providence Parks Urban Wildlife Refuge Partnership and the Audubon Society of Rhode Island, these free, monthly bird walks will be held at various urban parks.
These birding adventures began in 2018 as part of the Urban Bird Treaty Program, and last year in 2019, Providence was designated a Bird Treaty City. To read more about the Urban Bird Treaty and other participating cities, download the fact sheet and visit the website.
