Hi All,

There are still some spaces in our upcoming online banding workshop. We're
omitting the field and lab components this year but providing the lectures
in a shortened workshop format. Please feel free to share with anyone you
think may be interested.

Rocky Point Bird Observatory in Victoria, BC, Canada, is offering a virtual
introductory bird monitoring and banding workshop at via Zoom on March
23-24, 2021. The 2-day workshop will focus on bird ageing and sexing, molt,
and the Wolfe-Ryder-Pyle (WRP) cycle-based aging system. The program has
been developed for people with little or no banding experience, but those
with intermediate skills will also find the workshop a good way to build
knowledge. While we will miss having field and lab components this year, we
are going to take advantage of the opportunity to look at the topics much
more in-depth than we can in our usual workshop.

North American Banding Council certified trainer, Dr. Eric Demers, PhD,
RPBio, will be the instructor. Dr. Alison Moran will provide a guest lecture
on hummingbird biology.

The workshop fee is $175 Canadian, with discounts for students and Rocky
Point Bird Observatory members. Enrollment is limited to 20 participants.
