Bander's Responsibilities

Banding or marking birds can have temporary or long term physical or behavioral effects on birds. When banders are issued permits, they also assume certain responsibilities towards the Banding Offices and towards the birds. Attention to the ethics of banding begins long before banders venture into the field and ends long after the completion of the field study.
