Monitoring & Banding

"Those little nimble musicians of the air, that warble forth their curious ditties..." — Izaak Walton

The Tennessee River Gorge Trust is conducting a long-term monitoring and banding program on Trust properties in the Tennessee River Gorge. The Trust Avian Field Technicians are conducting ongoing audiovisual surveys in conjunction with banding sessions. They will be working to update and standardize their methods of survey technique in order to better help the Trust understand population trends in the years to come. Knowing population numbers and the condition of the birds captured, the Trust can use this information to manage the forest to best serve our local breeding birds.
