Molt and Ageing/Sexing Bird Banding Workshop - ONLINE

Recommended Posts

I am pleased to announce that Powdermill Nature Reserve will be holding a “Molt, Ageing, and Sexing” VIRTUAL workshop in September 2020.

The workshop will begin in the morning on Friday, September 25 and end Sunday, September 27. Because this is a virtual workshop, there will not be a hands-on component, however each morning will have up-close ageing and sexing birds instruction using live birds during normal banding operations. These sessions will be complemented with afternoon or evening presentations and discussions about banding methodology, molt terminology including discussion of molt cycles, using molt limits in ageing birds, and the use of the Pyle Guide. The focus of this workshop is to train participants to recognize molt limits and to age and sex passerines. The cost is $150 per person and will be taught by NABC-certified Trainers and follow NABC principles and standards.

To express interest in this workshop, please fill out the Google Form here. Space in this workshop is limited, so please fill out the google form soon. In the coming weeks, our Banding Program Manager will contact those eligible for the workshop with an invitation to register along with additional instructions.
