  1. Beginner Bird Banding Course April 22 – 28, 2019 The Harris Center for Conservation Education and New Hampshire Audubon will host a Spring Beginner Bird Banding course in Hancock, NH from April 22 – 28, 2019. The beginner course is intended for birders and wildlife biologists to obtain bird handling skills and will be taught by Dr. Patricia Wohner. Patricia has been banding birds on research projects and MAPS stations for over 19 years and will teach necessary skills for monitoring and research programs involving bird banding. The specific skills taught will include: safe operation of mist nets, methods of extraction of birds from mist nets, bird-handling skills, a primer on in-hand ageing and sexing techniques, and data scoring and recording using MAPS protocol and forms. Target netting skills may also be taught depending on interest. The course will be taught at the beginning of spring migration in young and mature forest at the beautiful Harris Center for Conservation Education in Hancock, NH. Each student will handle many different passerines and near-passerines including Warblers, Sparrows, Woodpeckers, Thrushes, and others. Each day will consist of a morning practical mist netting and banding birds, and an afternoon class session at the Harris Center. Cost of the course including lunch is $975/ person. A $150 non-refundable down payment is required to hold a spot in the class. Classes fill quickly, so be sure to register early! The Beginner Bird Banding Course is limited to 7 participants! To register or questions email pjwohner@gmail.com or call 423-999-9019. In the registration email, please include your name, address, and phone number where you can be reached. Payment by check can be made payable to Patricia Wohner. Send checks to Carol Foss, Audubon Society of New Hampshire, 84 Silk Farm Road, Concord, NH 03301
  2. I am pleased to announce that Powdermill Avian Research Center will be holding an “Extraction/Banding” workshop in May 2019. Spring “Extraction/Banding” Workshop: Wednesday, May 15 through Sunday, May 19. The workshop will begin before dawn on Wednesday (5/15) and end Sunday (5/19) at noon. Participants will want to arrive Tuesday evening (5/14) 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 handle and extract birds from mist nets, and to band birds, but we’ll have discussions and practice ageing and sexing birds via plumage and molt limits, and will include discussions on molt terminology and how to decode the “Pyle Guide”. The cost is $750 per person and includes on site lodging (with kitchen) and breakfast. This workshop will be NABC-approved. To sign up please fill out the following Google Form: http://goo.gl/forms/kaQiLhs1aZ
  3. The Vancouver Avian Research Centre is pleased to announce spring 2017 dates for Bird Monitoring and Banding Workshops. Bird Monitoring and Banding Workshop: • May 5 – 7 • June 3 - 5 The Bird Monitoring and Banding Workshop is designed for people with little or no bird banding or bird in the hand experience and provides a fantastic opportunity to see birds up close and personal, to learn about their plumage, molt sequences and life habits. Most of all, these workshops are designed to be a fun and interesting experience and a way to take your interest in birds and the environment to the next level. See what people who have attended the workshops have to say and why the average rating from course participants is 9.5 out of 10!! http://www.birdvancouver.com/testimonials.html Full details of course schedules and content and registration information can be found online at: http://www.birdvancouver.com/workshop_banding_intro.html

    Used bird-related field equipment?

    Hi Everyone, Is there a forum/website/etc where people are selling or donating their used bird-related field equipment (e.g. mist-nets, poles, banding pliers, etc.)? I have bought a lot of equipment out-of-pocket over the years, but I'm faced with a larger purchase of equipment for the upcoming field season. I think a lot of people can relate to this problem after using their PhD lab's equipment for many years and then moving on to a non-bird lab for their post doc or starting their own research program. My colleague Kiyoko and I are attempting to crowdfund to cover some equipment costs (https://www.instrumentl.com/campaigns/urbanization-and-galapagos-birds/) but most of the money raised will probably just cover travel. Thanks for any insight! Sarah
  6. Hello fellow bird banders, I am part of a three-university research team that is investigating the ecology of tick and pathogen invasions (e.g., black legged ticks and Lyme disease). We're submitting a grant proposal with the primary goal of determining the degree to which wild birds are involved as hosts for ticks and associated pathogens, and transporting them to new locations. We plan to form a network of banding stations across the midwest and south-central US from which we will collect data on ticks and pathogens carried by birds. We are particularly interested in working with stations that could check for and sample ticks, as well as blood samples - even if only on a subset of days. Ideal stations will operate in the spring and fall, but we're happy to work with summer-operating stations as well. If the grant is funded, participating stations would be issued an annual stipend, as well as all supplies and training necessary. Currently we're trying to gauge how much interest there is in the possibility of forming a network throughout the year. If you are interested please contact me at cmroy2@illinois.edu. Happy fall!

  7. The Toucan Ridge Ecology and Education Society (T.R.E.E.S) is scheduling a North American Banding Council (NABC) certification session for landbirds at its field station in the Maya Mountains of Belize. We will be offering a Bander level workshop of 8 candidates, with an additional Trainer level for those who have already completed their NABC Bander certification or wish to do both in the same session. The Bander session will be between the 26th of November and 1rd of December 2014. Trainer certifications will be between the 1st and 3rd of December 2014. NABC manuals are available from the NABC website at http://www.nabanding.net/bander-resources/. Reservation deadline is Nov.1 2014 or until full.
