birdbandingBanding/ringing is an important tool in ornithology. In the middle ages birds were marked with leg bands, probably for ownership identification. John James Audubon banded some birds, but it wasn’t until the late 19th century in Europe where the practice of “ringing” took hold. By the early 1900’s banding was popular in the US and gave rise to the American Birding Association. Later the responsibility for coordinating, standardizing, and data collection went to the federal government’s USGS Bird Banding Laboratory. All banders must be provided permits by the BBL in order to capture and band birds. More information. In the UK go to http://www.bto.org/ringing/index.htm for Ringing information. Also see Wikipedia at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bird_ringing and the Journal of Field Ornithology

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERASmaller birds are often caught in “mist nets” ; like large hair nets , they are placed in areas where birds are likely to fly. The birds do not see the nets and fly into them. If done properly and checked often, injuries or death to the birds are rare. Bird nets can only be purchased and used by approved bird banders and researchers.

What do we learn from banding?

Banding allows the determination of the minimum length of time that an individual bird lives. Without an individual marker, there would be no way to determine if the Cardinal that is outside my window is the same bird that I saw last year or not. With a bird band, if I catch that Cardinal today and band it, I will know if that one bird is caught again in the future.

We have learned, for example, that it is not uncommon for individuals of some species to live 10 to 20 years or more in the wild. Small songbirds that we may think of as short-lived may live a surprising length of time. We have a record of a hummingbird living as long as 12 years! However, the average life span of the majority of the individuals is much shorter.

A collective whose members band birdsNorth American Banding Council

The North American Banding Council (NABC), incorporated in 1998, is a nonprofit group encompassing bird research organizations whose members use bird banding as a tool in ornithological research, conservation, and management. The mission of the NABC is to promote sound and ethical bird-banding practices and techniques.
