Welcome to BBBO
Who we are
Braddock Bay Bird Observatory is a non-profit organization dedicated to ornithological research, education and conservation. BBBO is operated entirely by volunteers, with the financial support of our members. Our primary research and education facility, the Kaiser-Manitou Beach Banding Station, is located on the south shore of Lake Ontario northwest of Rochester, NY. Find out more.
Spring banding has ended for the season. We banded a total of 3,783 birds and processed 617 recaptures. Detailed information about the spring season will appear in our Fall 2014 newsletter. Many thanks to all the volunteers who made the season possible, and to all the guests who made it fun! Fall banding will commence around the middle of August . . . stay tuned!
