  1. 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
  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. After years of successful NABC workshops in Belize, this spring banding workshop is back by popular demand at the TREES Field Station and Toucan Ridge Bird Observatory! 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. Workshop: April 4-8, Cert.: April 9-10, Workshop (5 days), 950 USD; Cert. (2 days), 400 USD; Both (7 days) 1350 USD. Course is hosted in an open-air facility with small groups (max. 4 per trainer) at T.R.E.E.S Research Center, Covid Safe Gold Standards Approved.

  4. 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.
