HMN’s monitoring program generates knowledge about hummingbird diversity, abundance, productivity, and survivorship in various habitats. Our monitoring teams band hummingbirds under a schedule that starts each year in Spring and goes through Fall to collect this critical information. Each session is conducted once every other week, on a week period from Thursday to Wednesday. Each monitoring session lasts for five hours. If you are interested in participating during one of these sessions, check our schedule below and explore our volunteer opportunities.
