Annie Posted June 29, 2021 Share Posted June 29, 2021 Powdermill Nature Reserve is pleased to announce that it will be holding an in-person Ageing Birds with Molt Limits workshop in September 2021. Fall “Bird Banding and Ageing Birds via Molt Limits” Workshop: Wednesday, September 21 through Sunday, September 26. The workshop will begin at 6:00pm eastern time on Tuesday (9/21) with an introductory presentation and end Sunday (9/26) at noon. Participants will want to arrive during the day Tuesday (9/21) 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 age and sex passerines via plumage and molt limits, and will include discussions on molt terminology and how to decode the “Pyle Guide”. Participants are expected to have prior experience handling and extracting birds from nets. The cost is $750 per person and includes hands-on instruction, on-site lodging (with kitchen), and breakfast each morning. This workshop will be NABC-approved.
