Costa Rica banding video discussion

Posted on Jan 8, 2014

As you may have seen in our media bar this new HD video features RTPI Affiliate Sean Graesser discussing banding in Costa Rica’s Curu Wildlife Reserve on the Nicoya Peninsula (update – the second video can be seen here and the third video can be seen here). You can listen to Sean detailing why it is important while putting a Northern Waterthrush (Parkesia noveboracensis) through the process.

This is the first of a series of videos from Costa Rica that you should look for in the media bar or our media section as well as our blog. Sean also discusses research and conservation efforts underway there, why it is important and how our backyard birds need our help at their winter homes. The video was taken by RTPI President Twan Leenders a couple of weeks ago. The next video will talk more about these subjects and feature a recaptured bird and why such findings are significant.

Stay tuned and please subscribe to our YouTube channel! There will be a lot of fantastic video coming throughout 2014.
