Next Lunch & Learn Event:
Wednesday, January 29, 2020
In this presentation Dr. Jerry Jackson will give a brief history of bird banding, highlighting things we have learned through bird banding. He will also describe the permits one must have to band birds and identify organizations and journals that focus on banding. Very importantly, he will discuss the ethics of bird banding and specifically the "Bander Code of Ethics" of the North American Banding Council. Jerry will also have examples of bands, color bands, other types of tags, and the tools, nets, and traps used in capturing and banding birds.
