Extraction/Banding workshop, Powdermill, Sept 2018

Recommended Posts

Powdermill Nature Reserve will be holding an “Extraction/Banding” workshop in September 2018. Fall “Extraction/Banding” Workshop: Wednesday, September 19 through Sunday, September 23. The workshop will begin before dawn on Wednesday (9/19) and end Sunday (9/23) at noon. Participants will want to arrive Tuesday evening (9/18) 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.
