Molt Limits and Plumage Workshop in Texas - April 10-13

Recommended Posts

The Institute for Bird Populations (IBP) and the Rob and Bessie Welder Wildlife Foundation are offering an advanced molt limits and plumage banding class April 10-13, 2019. Have you ever wanted to spend a week in coastal Texas during spring migration? Perhaps catch some of the amazing species that will be passing northward AND improve your banding skills? Now you have your chance.

The class is designed for experienced banders who wish to improve their sexing and ageing skills. These classes focus on understanding and identifying the differences between specific adult age classes using the Identification Guide to North American Birds by Peter Pyle. We also spend time addressing advanced skills such as skulling, refining the scoring of various characteristics, and interpreting these characteristics for age and sex determinations. We will also cover nuances of recording data using MAPS protocol for those that are interested.

The instructor, Danielle Kaschube, has been teaching banding classes for over 20 years and is always excited to share her knowledge about molt, plumages, and ageing with students of all experience levels. She coordinates the MAPS program at The Institute for Bird Populations and is a North American Banding Council certified trainer.

Additional information about the class is available on the Welder Foundation class information sheet. Please contact the class host, Angie Arredondo (phone: 361-364-2643) or visit the Welder Foundation website to register.
