Avian Research Field Course
Learn more about this experience and apply to participate below!
This Field Course is for those people interested in learning or improving research techniques and related field skills for studying birds in terrestrial landscapes. We offer introductory, intermediate, advanced and master-level course segments in bird banding/ringing, point count sampling, species identification, and datasheet and database management methods. Each course segment lasts two weeks, and interns can opt to combine several segments into a course that best suits their training needs with respect to bats. Each course segment is led by one or two bat experts, each with years of experience to share, and include both theoretical and practical classes. Participants who successfully complete the full course (i.e. all four segments, Beginner to Master, lasting 8 weeks) or the three most advanced segments (i.e. Intermediate to Master, 6 weeks) can gain direct access to the Skilled Research Internship program going forward, as their level of expertise will have reached a sufficiently high level that would be able to assist the bird team coordinators with all aspects of their work in a professional and semi-independent manner. Fees apply for each course segment.
