Warner Parks Nature Center has been banding Hummingbirds since 2001. This banding was on August 30, 2011, just as the Hummingbirds prepare for their migration south. The very first bird caught this morning was a female that had been previously banded in 2008 at the same location. Edwin and Percy Warner Parks, collectively known as The Warner Parks,” are managed by the Metropolitan Board of Parks and Recreation of Nashville and Davidson County. The Warner Parks together span 2684 acres of forest and field, 9 miles from downtown Nashville. Included are a nature center, hiking and bridle trails, an equestrian center, picnic and shelter areas, scenic drives, cross country running courses, a model airplane field, athletic fields, and two golf courses. The Nature Center is on Highway 100. Nature Center (615) 352-6299 for more information.
