For those of you interested in learning more about identification, ageing, sexing, and everything else involved in banding birds, Rocky Point Bird Observatory is holding its annual banding workshop on March 24-26. Please see below for details, and be sure to register sooner rather than later as it can fill up quickly.
Rocky Point Bird Observatory
Introductory Bird Monitoring and Banding Workshop
March 24 -26, 2017
The three-day workshop will focus on bird identification, monitoring procedures and techniques, sexing, and ageing. Components also include an owl monitoring and banding demo and an optional session on hummingbird banding. The program has been developed for people with little or no bird handling and/or banding experience, but those with intermediate skills will also find the workshop a good way to build knowledge.
