Klamath Bird Observatory will present a Fundamentals of Songbird Banding Workshop at our Upper Klamath Field Station in southern Oregon on July 24–28, 2017. This is a North American Banding Council
-approved training session with NABC-based content and NABC-certified Trainer instructors. The registration fee will directly benefit our long-term monitoring and banding training program.
The four days of classroom and hands-on instruction will include training in bird safety, bird handling, mist net use and maintenance, data collection, bird identification, bird banding, and sexing and ageing techniques through both hands-on instruction while capturing birds and numerous seminars.
