NABC Bird Banding Workshop

Our fall banding workshop is back by popular demand at the T.R.E.E.S. Field Station and Toucan Ridge Bird Observatory in Belize! Over the 5-day workshop, participants will learn the basics of bird banding from certified NABC trainers. Instruction will be primarily field-based in small groups (max. 4 per trainer), while classroom style discussions will review: the history of bird banding, bird banding techniques, Pyle, Bird Topography, Molt, and other pertinent topics. The workshop is tailored for participants with no experience to those with plenty. For those wishing to become certified at the Assistant, Bander, or Trainer level, the session will take place immediately following the workshop. Participants will learn ageing and sexing of Neotropical migrants as well as resident Belizean birds using both Pyle and WRP ageing systems.
