Don’t Miss the Opportunity to Visit a KBO Bird Banding Station in 2019!

Klamath Bird Observatory continues to offer public visits to bird banding at our Upper Klamath Field Station near Fort Klamath in the Upper Klamath Lake area. The bird banding is scheduled on Thursday mornings through mid-October. Individual, family, and group visits can be arranged by emailing KBO’s Banding Program Coordinator Bob Frey (see below).

Nestled along Sevenmile Creek on the Fremont-Winema National Forest, this banding station has been operated each year during the nesting and fall migration seasons since 1997—one of the longest running bird monitoring sites in the region. In the fall, many songbird species migrate through the Klamath Basin and can be encountered here, especially large numbers of warblers and sparrows. The location is also a birding hotspot on the Klamath Basin Birding Trail.

And … KBO and Crater Lake National Park continue our bird ecology program series into the fall. These Ranger-led programs begin at the Park’s Steel Visitor Center and feature a visit to KBO’s banding station at the Park’s Munson Valley. These programs are scheduled on Friday mornings—please check the Crater Lake National Park series flyer below for upcoming dates and more details.

Don’t miss these opportunities to visit KBO’s biologists and the birds they are studying up close!

Registration for KBO’s 2019 Summer Bird Banding Workshop closes soon!

Our 2019 Summer Bird Banding Workshop is August 5-9 at our Upper Klamath Field Station. This is a North American Banding Council-approved training session with NABC-based content and NABC-certified Trainer instructors. All registration fees go directly to funding our long-term monitoring and banding training program. Registration closes July 15, 2019.

The four-day workshop will combine morning sessions learning hands-on in the field with afternoons in the classroom and provide participants with an excellent opportunity to experience an active bird monitoring station and learn the theory and skills required to operate it. Participants will receive training in bird safety, mist net use and maintenance, data collection, bird identification, bird banding, and sexing and ageing techniques. The workshop agenda is designed as a comprehensive introduction for those with little to no prior experience but is also appropriate for more experienced banders looking to build upon their existing skills and knowledge. Participants should not expect to emerge from this workshop as fully qualified bird banders, however, this course provides an excellent start in preparation for those interested in pursuing the NABC Bander certification. This workshop is designed for undergraduate and graduate students, bird observatory volunteers, naturalists, and others interested in pursuing careers in ornithology or assisting at bird banding stations.

The registration fee is $1,600 per person and is non-refundable. Registration includes all meals (including beverages and snacks) beginning with dinner Monday August 5 and ending with lunch Friday August 9. Space is available for free tent camping at KBO’s rustic Upper Klamath Field Station. There is lodging available nearby at several Rocky Point area resorts and lodges (all with rooms and/or cabins as well as RV and tent camping) and a few options on Airbnb (search Rocky Point or Klamath Falls, Oregon). A little further away are Running Y Ranch Resort (about 20 minute drive) and hotels in Klamath Falls (about 40 minutes).
