Bird Banding: Past, Present, Future

The OYBC Conference in Columbus, Ohio had amazing young speakers this year! We thought they were so good – we would write about each one of them separately!

Bird Banding: Past, Present, Future
Speaker: Robert

OYBC conference 210

Robert is a cool, expert bird bander and all around cool guy. We have seen him in action at the Black Swamp Bird Observatory. He has incredible patience and can captivate an audience eager to see a bird up close.

Robert’s presentation went through the past, present and future of bird banding. The history of bird banding is very interesting, from the very first birds banded with string to the current bird bands used today. He also covered the process of bird banding and the importance of keeping records.

Kudos to another amazing young birder presentation!
