This course will be conducted during fall migration so that students can experience one of the most exciting aspects of the avian life cycle: migration. Students will have an opportunity to learn about bird banding techniques as well as other methods utilized to study bird migration. Mornings will consist of fieldwork, including the observation of mist netting and bird banding, and demonstration of aging and sexing techniques. Afternoons will consist of lectures that will provide students with basic information on bird banding, bird migration, and how research techniques are used to solve some of the mysteries of ornithology. 

Instructors: Vicki Piaskowski is an ornithologist and the retired international coordinator of the Birds Without Borders-Aves Sin Fronteras© project of the Foundation for Wildlife Conservation, Inc and the Zoological Society of Milwaukee. She has conducted ornithological field research and training in the U.S. and in Belize, Central America. She will be assisted by Jennifer Callaghan, Research and Citizen Science Coordinator at the Urban Ecology Center.
