Hi Birders and Banders,

The last 2011 spring/summer Bird Monitoring and Banding Workshop will be held on June 17th – 19th.

Developed for people with little or no bird banding or bird in the hand experience this workshop provides a fantastic opportunity to see birds up close and personal, to learn about their plumage, molt sequences and life habits and obtain hands on banding and processing skills.

Most of all, this workshop is designed to be a fun and interesting experience and a way to take your interest in birds and the environment to the next level.

See what people who have attended this workshop have to say:
http://www.birdvancouver.com/testimonials.html and why our average rating from course participants is 9.5 out of 10!!

The workshops fill up quickly and there won’t be further courses until the fall so please be sure to book early online at:

Happy spring/summer birding and banding!

Derek

Noticed this guy at Colony Farm a couple of days ago (23rd). Presumably yours.
