The Vancouver Avian Research Centre has just posted dates for Bird
Monitoring and Banding Workshops:

* June 5 - 7

* September 11 - 13

Consisting of both classroom sessions and hands-on instruction, the workshop
provides an excellent opportunity to experience a professional bird
monitoring and banding station in action and provides a fantastic
opportunity to see birds up close and personal, to learn about their
plumage, molt sequences and life habits.

The workshop has been developed for people with little or no bird banding
experience, although those with existing experience have benefited
enormously from the field and classroom sessions which teach accurate ageing
and sexing of NA landbirds in the hand in a methodical way. Participants
will receive training in bird safety and welfare, bird identification, bird
banding and taking biometric measurements, ageing and sexing techniques,
mist net use and data collection.

Most of all, these workshops are designed to be a fun and interesting
experience and a way to take your interest in birds to the next level. See
what people who have attended the workshops have to say and why the average
rating from course participants is 9.5 out of 10!!

Full details of the course schedule, content and registration information
can also be found online:

Thank you!
