  1. This year, the Eastern Bird Banding Association will have its annual meeting on the stunning Schoodic Penninsula in Maine from 22-24 June. We hope you will join us for some great workshops and research talks, our fantastic bucket raffle, and - of course - puffins! We are soliciting abstracts for the poster and paper sessions, which will be held on Saturday 23 June. Presentations can reflect original research, summarize existing information, address the use of banding as a tool in avian research and monitoring, present improvements and innovations in banding, or explore novel ways of using banding to teach and communicate science to the public. We especially encourage abstracts addressing research in which banding was an essential component, but will consider submissions from a broader spectrum of research as well. Please submit poster abstracts electronically to Andrea Patterson <andrea.j.patterson@gmail.com>, and paper abstracts electronically to Lisa Kiziuk <lkr@wctrust.org>. For additional information about the 2018 meeting, check our our website <http://www.easternbirdbanding.org/2018-ebba-meeting/>. -- Andrea Patterson Director, Braddock Bay Bird Observatory 144 Greystone Lane #24 Rochester, NY 14618 Tel. - (585) 490-5361 andrea.j.patterson@gmail.com EBBA Call for Presentations 2018.pdf

    Eastern Bird Banding Association 2016 Annual Meeting

    The 94th annual meeting of the Eastern Bird Banding Association will be held April 8-10, 2016 in Blackwater Falls State Park in Davis, West Virginia. Our theme is "Birding with a purpose: banding to further conservation" and our keynote speaker will be renowned naturalist, writer and bird bander Scott Weidensaul. For over 100 years bird banding has helped society better understand the natural history of birds. This knowledge was translated into an improved ability to conserve bird populations, from harvested species, through uncommon non-game birds, to threatened and endangered species. Bird conservation challenges will continue and grow during the coming years. Bird banding continues to be an essential tool for wildlife conservation as our world changes in response to the stresses human populations place on the Earth. The theme for the 2016 annual meeting of the Eastern Bird Banding Association will focus on current applications of bird banding to bird conservation efforts in the early decades of the 21st century. Paper proposals should be sent to Maren Gimpel <Mgimpel2-at-washcoll.edu> by March 1, 2016. Speakers will be notified of acceptance by March 6th. Presenters have their registration fee waived and Saturday's lunch provided. Members and non-members are invited to attend. Please see our meeting website for more details.

  4. Braddock Bay Bird Observatory (BBBO), located near Rochester NY, will be holding a North American Banding Council (NABC) certification session for landbirds on October 4-6, 2013. Testing will be available at the bander level for up to six candidates seeking or already possessing a US or Canadian banding permit or subpermit, and at the trainer level for up to three candidates who have already achieved NABC bander-level certification. Applications may be obtained from the NABC website http://www.nabanding.net, and may be submitted no later than August 24 to Andrea Patterson, 144 Greystone Lane #24, Rochester, NY 14618; phone 585-490-5361; ajpforbusiness@gmail.com. An additional charge of $25 per person is needed for snacks, lunches and dinners. Checks or money orders should be made out to Elizabeth W. Brooks. Accepted candidates will be notified no later than August 31. NABC manuals and certification expectations are also available from the NABC website. Those seeking bander certification are encouraged to contact an NABC trainer (see website) as early as possible to proctor the written exam portion of the certification prior to coming to BBBO; however, for those not able to do so, the exam may be taken at BBBO by prior arrangement. Passing the examination is required in order to participate in the bander field evaluation. Trainer candidates who have previously passed bander certification need not retake this written exam if they obtained a grade of 90 or better in the last five years. Persons not yet bander certified may apply for both the bander and trainer candidate positions, and will be evaluated for trainer based on first passing the bander certification at this session and a written exam score of 90 or better.
