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.

Guest posted a topic in News & AnnouncementsKlamath Bird Observatory (KBO) offers an internship program that provides mentorship and expert instruction in applied conservation science techniques, including bird survey methodologies, to early-career conservation scientists. These motivated student-interns develop the personal and professional skills they need to excel in to the future as conservation leaders. This is one of KBO’s most far reaching and influential programs – former KBO interns can now be found throughout the continent doing great science and driving important conservation. We are currently raising funds to support our internship program through our first online crowdfunding campaign – "Saving Migratory Birds: Help Klamath Bird Observatory Build a Network of Caretakers for Migratory Birds". We are posting to ask that our ornithological community help to spread the word. You can view and share the KBO campaign via this link – www.indiegogo.com/projects/saving-migratory-birds. Please consider sharing this link through social media and other outreach forums. Any help you could give to “get the word out” about this campaign to benefit early-career conservation scientists and migratory birds is greatly appreciated!
