Monthly Bird ringing at Rondevlei tomorrow

10 Jun 2016 Posted by in Environment, News and Events | Comments

A reminder tomorrow will see monthly bird ringing take place at Rondevlei from 8 – 12 (weather dependent). With the cold front passing the day might prove to be bright and sunny. Bring along your breakfast or coffee and join; entrance free to Friends of Zeekoevlei & Rondevlei members.

Last months ringing was very successful with 35 birds caught and rung, including 2 Malachite Kingfishers. We had a number of students from the Technikon and University present which resulted in informal lessons on bird anatomy from our expert, Colin Jackson.

The two Malachite Kingfishers we rung last month. These are fascinating birds to have in the hand.
