Ruby Throated HummingbirdAdopt a Hummingbird 

KNC’s Kalamazoo Valley Bird Observatory (KVBO) has been using bird banding as a tool to help better understand migration patterns, longevity, dispersal and stop over of both breeding and migrating birds at our two locations, the Kalamazoo Nature Center and Pittsfield, for over 30 years.

Adopting a Hummingbird is a unique and rewarding way to help our bird banding program and contribute to our bird banding program studies.

Your adoption packets for $50.00: 

  • Will be mailed to the address you provide.
  • Includes a certificate with your name, a photo, and a fact sheet about hummingbirds banded through the KVBO.

Adopt a hummingbird online below, or call (269) 381-1574 ext. 32, and staff will be happy to take your adoption over the phone. Thank you for your support of KNC’s Kalamazoo Valley Bird Observatory!
