      Hi Birders and Banders,

      Although it doesn't look much like spring out there this morning it
      is just around the corner (honestly!) and we have just posted dates for
      Bird Monitoring and Banding and Bird Identification Workshops.

      Bird Identification Workshop:

      • April 27 – 28

      Bird Monitoring and Banding Workshop:

      • May 10 – 12
      • June 7 - 9

      The Bird Identification Workshop is designed for beginner and
      intermediate birders who may wish to participate in citizen science
      projects such as the BC Breeding Bird Atlas or similar programs or who
      just want to take their bird knowledge and identification skills to the
      next level.

      This course covers groups, topography, field marks, song, habitat, molt,
      ageing and more and includes a guided field session to the Colony Farm
      banding station. Although developed for beginner and intermediate
      birders the ornithological aspects of the course benefit even the most
      experienced birders and the workshop is invaluable for birders traveling
      overseas.

      The Bird Monitoring and Banding Workshop is designed for people with
      little or no bird banding or bird in the hand experience and provides a
      fantastic opportunity to see birds up close and personal, to learn about
      their plumage, molt sequences and life habits.

      Most of all, these workshops are designed to be a fun and interesting
      experience and a way to take your interest in birds and the environment
      to the next level. See what people who have attended the workshops have
      to say and why the average rating from course participants is 9.5 out of
      10!!
