Bird banding has been used to study birds as early as the 1600s. Today, researchers can use highly accurate GPS transmitters to follow birds across the globe, yet banding is still widely used in research and conservation. In this online course, our Science & Conservation Director will discuss how and why researchers use banding to study birds, show you several examples of banding projects, and tell you how to report a sighting of a banded bird.
Where and when do we meet? This online course meets on Tuesday, June 13th, from 5:30–6:30 p.m. CDT. It will be an hour-long online course with time at the end for questions.
