Camp Campbell Gard, YMCA

The Camp Campbell Gard banding station has been in operation since 2009. Our periods of operation include spring migration from mid April to late May and fall migration from late August to middle October. Our goal is two banding dates per week with 3/week during the peak of each season.

The banding site if located at a camp of the Great Miami Valley YMCA and we are grateful for their generous use of the land for this purpose.

To date we have banded around 1200 individuals from 85 different species at the site. We have an ongoing project of non-native honeysuckle removal and we are monitoring how that affects songbird numbers and diversity.
