See songbirds up close and watch the experts band birds at Carpenter Nature Center near Hastings Classic Rosewood Inn. This happens the fourth Friday of every month except December when it is the third Friday( 8:30 AM to noon). Bird banding records show how long birds live, where they travel, and when they migrate. Donations of black oil sunflower seeds and suet are welcome. Any guests of Rosewood who donate $50 or more or products to the Nature Center will receive a $50 gift certificate toward a future stay. They just need a receipt from Carpenter’s for their donation.
