  1. Braddock Bay Bird Observatory is pleased to offer an advanced class aimed at preparing banders who are currently involved with or who are considering opening MAPS stations, or who might otherwise benefit from instruction in collecting the types of data suggested by the MAPS program. The course will run from the evening of Wednesday May 20 through the morning of Sunday May 24, 2020. Mornings will feature hands-on training in the field at the Kaiser-Manitou Beach Banding Station located just northwest of Rochester, NY on the shore of Lake Ontario. Students will primarily focus on processi
  2. The Eastern Bird Banding Association seeks applicants for grant awards to be used toward research using banding or other avian marking techniques. From one to five grants of up to $1000 each will be awarded with priority given to research being conducted on species that spend at least part of their life cycle in any U.S. state or Canadian province included in EBBA territory. Projects that are planned for other portions of the United States, Canada, or the Western hemisphere also may be considered. Research studies with conservation or management implications are particularly encouraged.
  3. Whether delicate or robust, mist nets strung across the landscape afford scientists the opportunity to conduct investigations that can only be done in the hand. But working with mist nets isn’t the only net work that banders do . . . Networks of researchers collaborate to collect data and draw conclusions that far surpass the scope of a single bander working in isolation. Networks of banders connected through organizations like EBBA unite, support and educate both novice and experienced practitioners. Social and business networks connect bird observatories to the broader community. Jo

  6. This year, the Eastern Bird Banding Association will have its annual meeting on the stunning Schoodic Penninsula in Maine from 22-24 June. We hope you will join us for some great workshops and research talks, our fantastic bucket raffle, and - of course - puffins! We are soliciting abstracts for the poster and paper sessions, which will be held on Saturday 23 June. Presentations can reflect original research, summarize existing information, address the use of banding as a tool in avian research and monitoring, present improvements and innovations in banding, or explore novel ways of u
  7. A new meeting has been added to the =1']Ornithology Meetings database. Meeting Description: The 94th annual meeting of the Eastern Bird Banding Association will be held April 8-10, 2016 in Blackwater Falls State Park in Davis, West Virginia. Our theme is "Birding with a purpose: banding to further conservation" and our keynote speaker will be renowned naturalist, writer and bird bander Scott Weidensaul. For over 100 years bird banding has helped society better understand the natural history of birds. This knowledge was translated into an improved ability to conserve bird populations, f
  8. Braddock Bay Bird Observatory (BBBO), located near Rochester NY, will be holding a North American Banding Council (NABC) certification session for landbirds on October 4-6, 2013. Testing will be available at the bander level for up to six candidates seeking or already possessing a US or Canadian banding permit or subpermit, and at the trainer level for up to three candidates who have already achieved NABC bander-level certification. Applications may be obtained from the NABC website http://www.nabanding.net, and may be submitted no later than August 24 to Andrea Patterson, 144 Greystone
