Fall Advanced Banding Workshop: Wednesday, September 14 through Sunday, September 18.

The workshop will begin before dawn on Wednesday (9/14) and end Sunday (9/18) at noon. Participants will want to arrive Tuesday evening (9/13) prior to the workshop. The majority of time will be spent in the field with live birds; however, these sessions will be complemented with some afternoon or evening presentations. 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 to decode the “Pyle Guide”, discuss molt terminology, and teach ageing passerines using molt limits; therefore, participants are expected to have prior experience handling and extracting birds from nets. However, there is space available for 1 or 2 individuals with no prior banding experience. The cost is $650 per person. On site lodging (with kitchen) and breakfast is included. This workshop will be NABC-approved.
