  1. Our fall banding workshop is back by popular demand at the TREES Field Station and Toucan Ridge Bird Observatory in Belize! Over the 5-day workshop, participants will learn the basics of bird banding from certified NABC trainers. Instruction will be primarily field-based in small groups (max. 4 per trainer), while classroom style discussions will review: the history of bird banding, bird banding techniques, Pyle, Bird Topography, Molt, and other pertinent topics. The workshop is tailored for participants with no experience to those with plenty. For those wishing to become certified (see www.nabanding.net for requirements) at the Assistant, Bander, or Trainer level, the session will take place immediately following the workshop. Participants will learn ageing and sexing of Neotropical migrants as well as resident Belizean birds using both Pyle and WRP ageing systems. Workshop: Nov. 7-11, Cert.: Nov. 12-13, Workshop (5 days), 950 USD; Cert. (2 days), 400 USD; Both (7 days) 1350 USD.

For more information about the workshop contact us at registration@ecorana.ca or info@treesociety.org
  2. 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. To apply please fill out the following Google Form: http://goo.gl/forms/kaQiLhs1aZ
  3. The Institute for Bird Populations (IBP) and Wolf Ridge Environmental Learning Center are offering several bird banding workshops in Minnesota this summer. In cooperation with IBP, Wolf Ridge will be hosting a beginner class June 20-27 and an advanced class June 29 - July 3rd. This beautiful campus tucked into the boreal forest, along the western shore of Lake Superior, is the perfect place to catch amazing birds and concentrate on all your bird banding skills. These classes can accommodate many skill levels, from those who have never handled a bird to those with good experience that want to fill in their banding and molt limits and plumage knowledge gaps, all under the eye of an experienced IBP instructor. These classes cover: operation of mist-nets and safe extraction of birds; bird-handling skills; in-hand ageing and sexing techniques; scoring and recording data using MAPS protocol and forms; instruction on the use of the Wolfe-Ryder-Pyle ageing system; avian life histories, energetics, molts, and plumages; banding ethics, the permitting process; and the role of banding in research and monitoring. The instructor, Danielle Kaschube, is a North American Banding Council certified trainer and has been teaching banding classes for over 20 years. She is always patient, enthusiastic, fun, and thorough in sharing her knowledge about molt, plumages, and ageing with students of all experience levels. Please visit IBP's Bird Bander Training page for more information about the classes and for registration links: http://www.birdpop.org/pages/birdBandingClasses.php
  4. Braddock Bay Bird Observatory has just had a cancellation in one of our spring Bander Training Classes: Session III: Sunday May 16 – Saturday May 22 The course is open to anyone interested in learning or perfecting banding skills from supportive, professional staff. Training will take place at the Kaiser-Manitou Beach Banding Station, located just northwest of Rochester, NY on the shore of Lake Ontario, during the peak of passerine migration when 100-300 bird days are not uncommon. Mornings will feature hands-on training in the field while afternoons will be devoted to lectures, demonstrations and in-depth instruction on various aspects of bird banding. General topics to be covered during each 7-day session include: netting and trapping techniques, removal of birds from mist nets, proper handling and processing of birds (including biometrics, ageing and sexing, molt terminology, skulling), use of the Pyle guide, permitting, relations with the public, and banders’ ethics. The class is suitable for beginning and novice banders, but because of the small class size we can tailor the experience to accommodate the needs of more experienced banders as well. The course has been approved by the North American Banding Council, uses training manuals produced by the NABC, and is taught by Andrea Patterson – an NABC-certified Trainer who has taught more than 175 students in small hands-on workshops at BBBO and in Belize. Participants will receive a certificate of participation from the NABC upon successful completion of the course. Both beginning and advanced banders will find the class a useful primer for eventual NABC certification. Course tuition is $600, which includes all materials. There is a $100 discount for students and early professionals (within 5 years of terminal degree) who are pursuing careers in avian ecology and who will be paying their own way. To encourage equity and inclusion in avian studies, we offer a limited number of full tuition waivers to students from groups under-represented in the field; for more information, contact Andrea Patterson. Our usual housing options are not available for this session, but reasonable AirBnB and camping options are nearby. Upon acceptance into the course, full payment is required to confirm the seat. To apply, fill out the online form. For additional information about the Banders’ Training Course please contact Andrea Patterson. COVID-19 Considerations The COVID-19 pandemic has made it difficult to offer hands-on instruction in a safe way as it requires close contact, “over the shoulder” supervision, passing birds and tools back and forth, etc. Our spring 2021 classes will be modified in the following ways: (1) all instructors will be fully vaccinated (i.e. receiving a final dose at least two weeks before the start of class), (2) all students must be fully vaccinated, (3) class size will be limited to 4 students, (4) the BBBO field house will not be available, and (5) some lectures may be conducted virtually. We will offer exemptions to the vaccination requirement for medical reasons only. We realize that some people will not be able to attend under these conditions; we encourage you to consider our fall class.
  5. Powdermill Avian Research Center (www.powdermillarc.org) is pleased to announce that it will be holding an “Ageing Birds via Molt Limits” VIRTUAL workshop June 11-13, 2021. The workshop will begin at 8:00am and end at roughly 4:00pm (eastern time zone) each day with a lunch break and several short get-up-and-stretch breaks. The workshop will be held via Zoom. Because this is a virtual workshop, there will not be a hands-on component, however we will have up-close instruction on ageing and sexing birds, and banding techniques, using high quality videos and photographs taken during normal banding operations. This will be complimented with presentations and discussions about banding methodology, molt terminology including discussion of molt cycles, using molt limits to age North American passerines, how to use the Pyle Guide, scientific use of banding data, and ethics and permitting. The focus of this workshop is to train participants to recognize molt limits and to age and sex North American passerines. The workshop’s intended audience is those use bird banding in their research, including bird banding professionals, graduate students, volunteers at banding stations, wildlife professionals, or ornithologists. The cost is $250 per person, or $150 for students who are paying their own registration fee or Latin Americans who are working in Latin America. The workshop will be taught by an NABC-certified Trainer and follow NABC principles, standards, and ethics. To express interest in one of these workshops, please fill out the following Google Form: http://goo.gl/forms/kaQiLhs1aZ Space in each of our workshops 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.
  6. Fundamentals of Songbird Banding Workshop Hosted by Klamath Bird Observatory at Upper Klamath Lake, Oregon Klamath Bird Observatory (https://www.klamathbird.org)is offering a Bird Banding Workshop at its Upper Klamath Field Station in southern Oregon on August 5-9 2019. This is a North American Banding Council (NABC)-approved training session instructed by certified Trainers. Registration fees contribute directly to funding our long-term monitoring and banding training program. This four day workshop will combine morning sessions learning hands-on in the field with afternoons in the classroom and provide participants with an excellent opportunity to experience an active bird monitoring station and learn the theory and skills required to operate it. Participants will receive training in bird safety, mist net use and maintenance, data collection, bird identification, bird banding, and sexing and ageing techniques. The workshop program is designed as a comprehensive introduction for those with little to no prior experience but is also appropriate for more experienced banders looking to build upon their existing skills and knowledge. Participants should not expect to emerge from this workshop as fully qualified bird banders, however, this course provides an excellent start in preparation for those interested in pursuing the NABC Bander certification. This workshop is designed for undergraduate and graduate students, bird observatory volunteers, naturalists, and others interested in pursuing careers in ornithology or assisting at bird banding stations. The non-refundable registration fee is $1,600 per person. Registration includes all meals (as well as beverages and snacks) beginning with dinner Monday, August 5th, and ending with lunch Friday, August 9th. There is space for free tent camping at KBO’s Upper Klamath Field Station and lodging is available nearby at the Rocky Point Resort, Comfort Point Lodge, and Harriman Springs Resort and Marina. Join us for a top-notch banding learning experience and help support Klamath Bird Observatory’s long-running monitoring and training program.
