  1. 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. To inquire: Contact Banding Program Coordinator Lauren diBiccari (led@klamathbird.org)
  2. The BirdsCaribbean 22nd International Conference will be held from 25-29 July 2019 in Le Gosier, Guadeloupe. Conference information is available (and will continue to be updated) on the BirdsCaribbean Conference Website. The conference will feature exciting keynote speakers, symposia, workshops and discussions related to the conservation of Caribbean birds and nature. The conference theme is “Keeping Caribbean Birds Aloft”. This theme conveys that we are actively working to solve the problems birds and humans face, both in the short- and long-term, and together we will keep birds soaring aloft. There will also be opportunities to explore Guadeloupe—its birds, mountains, beaches, and nearby islands through a number of mid, pre and post-conference field trips. Come ready to immerse yourself in a beautiful, and unique culture found nowhere else but the French West Indies. We invite you to join us for an ocean-side, action-packed conference! If you would like to receive news and updates about this conference and Caribbean birds, please sign up to receive our monthly newsletter and join our listserve (Yahoo discussion group). #BirdsCarib2019

  4. Greetings OE Partners & Friends, I am writing to make a community announcement and to request your help in support of an initiative for the critically-endangered White-bellied Heron, the second largest heron species in the world, whose last and final population stronghold remains in Bhutan and the Eastern Himalayas. With fewer than 60 known individuals on the planet, the survival of this species lies in the balance as it sits on the verge of extinction. I have worked on Black-necked crane and White-bellied heron conservation in Bhutan for almost 5 years with an environmental conservation organization called the Royal Society for Protection of Nature (RSPN). They have been dedicated in their work for avian conservation for 30+ years. And yet, In short, they really need some help supporting their efforts for White-bellied Herons. I am hopeful that the online community of ornithologists can provide some support, no matter the amount. I invite you to take a moment from your day to visit and consider supporting: https://www.gofundme.com/save-the-heron-support-a-kingdom If you cannot offer support at this time, would you please consider sharing this link within your personal or professional networks? Thank you for your consideration and help! Kind regards, David

  8. PSG has a Facebook page where information on conservation, seabirds, shorebirds, oceanography, climate change, fish, international bird meetings, jobs, and both graduate and undergraduate research positions are posted. Information on PSG's annual meeting is also posted there. Additionally, interesting scientific articles pertaining to the ocean are also occasionally posted. You cannot leave comments publicly, but you can contact the person who manages the site (the Secretary of PSG who is myself through Feb 2015) and leave comments, or you can request to have something posted. Here is the link: https://www.facebook.com/PacificSeabirdGroup
