Capturing birds and banding them with a unique identifier gives biologists insight into the health and demographics of our island's bird population.  Important information on the productivity, survivorship, and movements of many species can be attained through a banding program.  The Town of Kiawah has initiated several projects that use banding as the primary tool to study populations of different birds.
