The Alabama Gulf Coast is a critical stopover point as migratory birds return from Central and South America. Banding hours are from before dawn to mid-afternoon, depending on the flow of birds. Bring a lawn chair, binoculars and inquisitive mind but leave the pets at home.
Bird banding will begin before dawn each day. It is free and open to the public. There is a fee for entry onto the Fort Morgan Park. The banding normally ends each day between 3:00 and 5:00 PM.
Location: Fort Morgan Historic Site, Gulf Shores
Price: Admission to Fort: $5:00 adults, $3:00 children 6-12, free to younger children. Banding is FREE.
