Virtual Bird Monitoring & Banding Workshop    Sat Jul 10 to Sun Jul 11, 2021, Vancouver, BC


Join us for our acclaimed Virtual Bird Monitoring & Banding Workshop on July 10th and 11th, 2021 and take advantage of our special pricing!

This program is perfect for people with little to no bird banding experience. However, those with existing knowledge have benefited enormously from the classroom sessions, building solid technical foundations for ageing and sexing North American land birds in the hand.

The workshop will consist of seven interactive Zoom presentations with breakout sessions, exercises and printable course materials. Learn how to accurately age, sex, identify plumage, molt sequences and life habits of North American passerines. You will also receive training in banding station operations, bird safety and welfare, mist net use, and data collection. These skills provide the technical foundation required for fieldwork.

But most of all, these workshops are a fun and exciting way to take your interest in birds to the next level!

Participants will have the option of two subsequent field session trips to the Colony Farm Regional Park banding station. These practical sessions will be held any time over the next 12 months as Covid-19 restrictions ease.


Adults: $195 Zoom sessions + $150 for 2 field trips (optional)
Students: $145 Zoom sessions + $150 for 2 field trips (optional)

Please join us and see why our average participant rating is 9.5 out of 10!
