We will hold 2 or 3 workshops on Friday afternoon. These will be short talks on tips, tricks and knowledge-sharing for bird banders. We are currently seeking one more volunteer to deliver a workshop.
Bob Yunick will present “Knest Box Knowledge and Band Removal.” Bob started as a backyard bird bander in 1950 , banding to date nearly 220,000 birds and 203 species far beyond his backyard. He has monitored as many as 200 nest boxes per year along the way.
Annie Lindsay will present on Molt and Molt Limits: sharing her expertise in ageing birds by examining feather tracts for differences between juvenile feathers and retained adult feathers. Annie is the Banding Program Manager at Powdermill Avian Research Center and has been banding birds for 20 years.
