Audubon California’s 4000-acre Starr Ranch Sanctuary in southeast Orange County invites you to our spring bird banding workshops for adults. Because of the specialized nature of these workshops, we are asking that only serious students and potential Starr Ranch bird banding volunteers attend. The workshops will be taught by Starr Ranch ornithologist Kim Gleisser, an experienced bander who has worked at multiple banding stations and various other banding projects. Space is limited.
Advanced Bird Banding Workshop – This workshop is for more experienced banders (banded at least 50 birds) or have taken the beginning workshop who want to take their skills to the next level. Participants will focus mainly on advanced ageing and sexing of birds in the hand. Afternoon discussions will focus on detailed analysis and understanding of the molt cycle and bird plumage characteristics, as well as advanced use of the Pyle guide.
Dates and Times: March 17-18, 7:30 am- 3:30 pm daily
Cost: $250 or $255 with camping (BYO lunch, morning coffee & bagels provided)
