Hi Birders and Banders,
The August dates for Bird Identification and Bird Monitoring and Banding Workshops has just been posted on the VARC website - Full details of the course schedules and content can be found online at: http://www.birdvancouver.com/workshops.html
* Our Bird Identification Workshop - developed for birders who wish to participate in 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 a local birding area. 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.
* Our Bird Monitoring and Banding Workshop - developed for people with little or no bird banding or bird in the hand experience 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 our workshops have to say: http://www.birdvancouver.com/testimonials.html and why our average rating from course participants is 9.5 out of 10!!
Thanks for your interest and if you would like to attend either of the August courses please click on the workshop link and complete the registration form at the bottom of the page.
Happy banding and birding!
