Puget Sound Bird Observatory teaches banding classes for passerine birds, banding under our master bander's permit, Don Norman.
None of our members has a banding permit to band hummingbirds.

The master bander in this area who has a hummingbird permit is Dan Harville. I did assist him back in 2005/2006, and talked about those experiences and the sizing of the bands. Since I have had experience removing hummingbirds from nets and cages, I requested that newbies get me to release any caught hummingbirds.

Dan Harville has banded more than 11,000 hummingbirds and lives in the Edmonds area.
