Description: The Intermountain Bird Observatory is offering an introductory songbird banding workshop in Boise, Idaho from August 30 – September 1, 2014. This workshop will focus on songbird ID, banding, sexing, ageing, and safe handling techniques. We will also learn standardized monitoring techniques, data collection, how to set-up and take-down mist nests, and an introduction on how to safely extract birds from mist nets.


The Intermountain Bird Observatory is a 501 c (3) non-profit research unit of Boise State University. Proceeds from this workshop will be used as a donation to contribute towards our mission of conserving migratory landbirds through cooperative research, education, and public involvement.


Register early - enrollment is limited to 10 people. The workshop fee is $300. Registrations and payment must be received by July 20, 2014. The workshop may be cancelled if the class minimum is not met. For further questions regarding workshop details, contact Jessica Pollock at jessicapollock@boisestate.edu. Visit us on the web at http://ibo.boisestate.edu/what-we-do/training/ for more details on how to register and view the tentative schedule.


Qualifications: We developed this workshop for folks with little to no songbird banding experience. This workshop would be a great opportunity for students, birders, naturalists, and anyone interested in learning more about songbird identification or banding.
