  1. 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. For more information, and to register, please contact Lauren diBiccari at led<AT>klamathbird.org. Registration deadline is July 15, 2019.
  2. The Institute for Bird Populations (IBP) and the Opossum Creek Retreat are offering a beginner bird banding class April 20-26, 2019. The class will be held in the beautiful Appalachian mountains of West Virginia during the midst of migration and you can expect a wide variety of warblers, thrushes, mimids, etc. to be captured during the week. And, your accommodations are just minutes from the stunning New River Gorge. The class 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; avian life histories, energetics, molts, and plumages; banding ethics, the permitting process; and the role of banding in research and monitoring. The instructor, Ron Taylor, has been teaching banding classes for over 15 years and is always patient, enthusiastic, and thorough in sharing his knowledge about molt, plumages, and ageing with students of all experience levels. Please contact the class host, Keith Richardson (email:retreat@opossumcreek.com; phone: 888-488-4836) to register or for more information about the class. For more information about additional classes taught by instructors from The Institute for Bird Populations, please visit IBP's Bird Bander Training page.
  3. Klamath Bird Observatory Bird Banding Field Course Duration: 10-30 days, suggested 1 month commitment to maximize the training opportunity; dates flexible from June 1st to September 31st, 2019 Cost: $2000/10 day period; $5000/month Project Location: Klamath-Siskiyou Bioregion of southern Oregon and northern California BIRD BANDING FIELD COURSE. The Klamath Bird Observatory (www.KlamathBird.org) is offering a unique opportunity to participate in our long-term landbird monitoring program in the Klamath-Siskiyou Bioregion of southern Oregon and northern California. Our field course is an opportunity to immerse yourself in the life of a field ornithologist and obtain a comprehensive introduction to bird banding and other field methodologies. KBO’s bander training program blends an intensive field internship with coursework designed in accordance with North American Banding Council (NABC) standards. A typical 10-day schedule includes five days of mist-netting and banding and one of classroom training and lecture. Training covers safe and ethical mist netting and banding of songbirds, including collecting a robust set of metrics on each individual; observational bird surveys; science interpretation for the public; and data quality-assurance, entry, and management. Opportunities may also arise to support other KBO field projects which would provide exposure to target netting, color-banding, and application of transmitters and will depend on the time of year. Instruction can be targeted to address your particular goals and interests. This opportunity is suitable for a wide variety of candidates. Do you have a passion for birds and are curious to learn about them in depth and up close? Are you looking for a unique way to give back and contribute toward conservation? Interested in pursuing a career in ornithology and need a way to gain experience in a competitive field? Have an interest in avian fieldwork but want an opportunity to shadow before committing to a field job or course of study? Already have some experience but want to refine your skills with an intensive training program under certified banders and trainers? Accommodation is available in a shared room in a cabin on the Upper Klamath Lake. The cabin is nestled amongst tall ponderosa pine which host striking White-headed and Pileated Woodpeckers. A short walk leads down to the willow-lined, marshy edge of the lake which is thick with warblers and full of sound: the liquid pump-er-lunk song of American Bittern, metallic trills of Red-winged Blackbirds, and the raucous calls of breeding terns. Though rustic, the cabin has potable running water, a full kitchen, internet access, and hang out space featuring a cozy woodstove. Hiking and birding opportunities abound nearby and bikes and kayaks are available for use. There will be portable toilets on site and a shower at a nearby field house. Camping will be required approximately 3 nights per 10 day training. The five research sites are situated in the old growth forests, alpine meadows, and mountain streams that make up the beautiful diversity of the Pacific Northwest. One site requires a brief strenuous hike of about 1 mile. Operation of any banding station involves long, arduous days beginning pre-dawn under (occasionally) adverse conditions including heat, cold, mosquitoes, and smoke. However, if you enjoy fun physical work in wild places, being out in the quiet beauty of nature, and have a passion for wildlife and conservation our field course is a perfect opportunity.

  4. The Institute for Bird Populations (IBP) and the Rob and Bessie Welder Wildlife Foundation are offering an advanced molt limits and plumage banding class April 10-13, 2019. Have you ever wanted to spend a week in coastal Texas during spring migration? Perhaps catch some of the amazing species that will be passing northward AND improve your banding skills? Now you have your chance. The class is designed for experienced banders who wish to improve their sexing and ageing skills. These classes focus on understanding and identifying the differences between specific adult age classes using the Identification Guide to North American Birds by Peter Pyle. We also spend time addressing advanced skills such as skulling, refining the scoring of various characteristics, and interpreting these characteristics for age and sex determinations. We will also cover nuances of recording data using MAPS protocol for those that are interested. The instructor, Danielle Kaschube, has been teaching banding classes for over 20 years and is always excited to share her knowledge about molt, plumages, and ageing with students of all experience levels. She coordinates the MAPS program at The Institute for Bird Populations and is a North American Banding Council certified trainer. Additional information about the class is available on the Welder Foundation class information sheet. Please contact the class host, Angie Arredondo (phone: 361-364-2643) or visit the Welder Foundation website to register. For more information about classes taught by The Institute for Bird Populations, please visit IBP's Bird Bander Training page.

  6. I am pleased to announce that Powdermill Avian Research Center will be holding an “Extraction/Banding” workshop in May 2019. Spring “Extraction/Banding” Workshop: Wednesday, May 15 through Sunday, May 19. The workshop will begin before dawn on Wednesday (5/15) and end Sunday (5/19) at noon. Participants will want to arrive Tuesday evening (5/14) 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 handle and extract birds from mist nets, and to band birds, but we’ll have discussions and practice ageing and sexing birds via plumage and molt limits, and will include discussions on molt terminology and how to decode the “Pyle Guide”. The cost is $750 per person and includes on site lodging (with kitchen) and breakfast. This workshop will be NABC-approved.

  9. Hi Everyone, Is there a forum/website/etc where people are selling or donating their used bird-related field equipment (e.g. mist-nets, poles, banding pliers, etc.)? I have bought a lot of equipment out-of-pocket over the years, but I'm faced with a larger purchase of equipment for the upcoming field season. I think a lot of people can relate to this problem after using their PhD lab's equipment for many years and then moving on to a non-bird lab for their post doc or starting their own research program. My colleague Kiyoko and I are attempting to crowdfund to cover some equipment costs (https://www.instrumentl.com/campaigns/urbanization-and-galapagos-birds/) but most of the money raised will probably just cover travel. Thanks for any insight! Sarah
  10. Hello fellow bird banders, I am part of a three-university research team that is investigating the ecology of tick and pathogen invasions (e.g., black legged ticks and Lyme disease). We're submitting a grant proposal with the primary goal of determining the degree to which wild birds are involved as hosts for ticks and associated pathogens, and transporting them to new locations. We plan to form a network of banding stations across the midwest and south-central US from which we will collect data on ticks and pathogens carried by birds. We are particularly interested in working with stations that could check for and sample ticks, as well as blood samples - even if only on a subset of days. Ideal stations will operate in the spring and fall, but we're happy to work with summer-operating stations as well. If the grant is funded, participating stations would be issued an annual stipend, as well as all supplies and training necessary. Currently we're trying to gauge how much interest there is in the possibility of forming a network throughout the year. If you are interested please contact me at cmroy2@illinois.edu. Happy fall!
