Puget Sound Bird Observatory is teaching a Beginning Bird Bander Training, June 15-19, 2015.

Here is your chance to learn bird banding techniques at the spectacular Northwest Trek Wildlife Park near Eatonville, Washington. (See a part of Northwest Trek not open to the general public!)

The training follows North American Banding Council (NABC) guidelines and includes 5 full days of classroom and field instruction in riparian, mixed forest habitat.

Puget Sound Bird Observatory (PSBO) is pleased to have Glenn Johnson, M.S. serve as our lead trainer for this workshop. Glenn has more than 15 years experience as an avian ecologist and field educator which includes site management at one of PSBO’s stations for Monitoring Avian Productivity and Survival (MAPS).

Course fees include training, materials and text book. Fees do not include food or lodging, but a list of nearby amenities can be provided upon request.

This is an introductory course which covers netting and trapping techniques, removal of birds from mist nets, proper handling, processing (including biometrics, ageing and sexing, skulling), data management, relations with the public, and banders' code of ethics.

No birding or banding experience is required. Participants must be minimum 16 years of age.
