Subject: COURSE: Ecology and Conservation of Migratory Birds (September 1-12, 2014)
This new and unique training course is geared toward professionals looking to build and update their skills related to the study of migratory birds. The course also provides potential and current graduate students with modern skills in the field and the lab that can be difficult to learn in the university setting. Led by the Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center, this course teaches the most current methods in the research of migratory birds including theoretical concepts, field and laboratory methods (including mist-netting, banding, tissue sampling, stable isotope geochemistry, geolocators and radio telemetry) data analysis (including mark-recapture statistics) and applied conservation strategies. Participants will gain more than 20 hours of mist-netting and banding experience during the course.
