Molt Limit Workshop

 

I am pleased to announce that Powdermill Nature Reserve will be holding an “Ageing Birds with Molt Limits” workshop in May 2018.

Spring “Ageing Birds with Molt Limits” Workshop: Wednesday, May 16 through Sunday, May 20.

 

The workshop will begin before dawn on Wednesday (5/16) and end Sunday (5/20) at noon. Participants will want to arrive Tuesday evening (5/15) prior to the workshop. The majority of time will be spent in the field with live birds, and these sessions will be complemented with afternoon presentations and discussions. This workshop is an excellent primer for NABC (North American Banding Council) Bander Certification as we will cover banding ethics, banding methodology, molt terminology, and use of the Pyle Guide. The focus of this workshop is on training participants to age and sex passerines via plumage and molt limits, and will include discussions on molt terminology and how to decode the “Pyle Guide”. Participants are expected to have prior experience handling and extracting birds from nets. The cost is $750 per person and includes on site lodging (with kitchen) and breakfast. This workshop will be NABC-approved.
