  1. 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
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

  5. 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 processing birds at the banding table using MAPS datasheets and protocols. There will be some opportunity for interested students to work on best-practice extraction techniques as well, but our primary aim is to promote accurate aging, sexing, and scoring across a variety of measurement categories. Afternoons will be devoted to lectures, demonstrations and in-depth instruction on various aspects of MAPS banding, including: Aging birds, especially by molt, plumage characteristics, and skull Passerine and near-passerine molt sequences and strategies, using both the the traditional Humphrey-Parkes-Howell age classification system and the newer Wolfe-Ryder-Pyle cycle-based age classification system Discussions of all aspects of the MAPS datasheet, including accurately coding feather tracts as to their plumage generation; locating molt limits; recognizing and scoring cloacal protuberances and brood patches; assessing body molt, flight feather molt, and flight feather wear; and quantifying the extent of skull development An introduction to the overall MAPS protocol and requirements 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. The five-day course is timed to coincide with the peak of spring migration. As this is an advanced workshop, we ask that participants have prior mist-netting and banding/processing experience of at least 200 birds. Exceptions will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Course tuition is $300, which includes all materials and the opening night’s dinner. There is a $50 discount for students and early professionals pursuing careers in avian ecology. Course participants can elect to be housed at the BBBO field house for an additional fee of $100. Because space in this course is limited, priority will be given to those with the opportunity to use these skills either in their work or as volunteers. Upon acceptance into the course, a $100 deposit is required to confirm the seat; full payment is due on or before April 15. Tuition and housing are refundable minus a $25 administrative fee if the participant cancels prior to the final payment deadline. To apply, fill out the online form. For additional information about the MAPS Prep Workshop please contact Andrea Patterson.
