students, bird observatory volunteers, naturalists, and others interested in
learning more about bird monitoring and conservation science. The course is
particularly suitable for those interested in pursuing careers in
ornithology or volunteering at bird banding stations.  No previous

Dates: August 4-8, 2014


Cost: $1,000


Klamath Bird Observatory is offering a Bird Banding Workshop at its Upper Klamath Lake Field Station in southern Oregon on August 4-8, 2014.  This is a North American Banding Council (NABC) sanctioned training event.  The workshop content will be NABC-based and all instructors will be NABC-certified Bander Trainers.  Upon successful completion, participants with be presented with a NABC Training Certificate. 


The 4-day workshop will provide an excellent opportunity for individuals to experience an active bird monitoring station and learn the skills needed for its operation.  Participants will receive training in bird safety, mist net use and maintenance, data collection, bird identification, bird banding, and sexing and ageing techniques - through both hands-on instruction and numerous seminars.  The workshop program has been developed for people with little or no bird handling and banding experience, although those with
intermediate skills will benefit from the workshop by building upon their existing skills and knowledge.


This is an introductory course and participants will be exposed to the fundamental skills and knowledge that serve as the foundation for becoming a skilled bird bander.  Participants should not expect to emerge from this workshop as qualified bird banders.  This course provides excellent preparation for those interested in pursuing the NABC Bander certification. 


The registration fee is $1,000 per person. 


Registration includes all meals beginning with dinner August 4 and ending with lunch August 8.  Space is

available for tent camping at the Upper Klamath Lake Field Station.  There is lodging nearby at the Rocky Point Resort  http://rockypointoregon.com/> http://rockypointoregon.com/ and the Lake of the Woods Resort http://www.lakeofthewoodsresort.com/ (both with cabins as well as RV and tent camping), and the Crystalwood Lodge
