HBMO Hummingbird Adoption Program

As part of HBMO’s commitment to the greater understanding of migration and conservation of birds, we conduct banding research programs on hummingbirds. To help support these research initiatives, you can adopt one of these banded birds.

As an adopter, you will receive a digital 8.5″ x 11″ Certificate of Adoption that you can print and frame or easily share online with others. The certificate will include the adopter’s name, a hummingbird photo, the unique band number, and other important information including the age and sex of the bird. If the bird is recaptured anywhere, we will let you know.

To adopt, just click the “Pay Now” button below and you will be taken to our secure PayPal online payment site. Your certificate will be emailed to you within 1-2 weeks.
