Our Team

The Inland Bird Banding Association is an organization for all who are interested in the serious study of birds, their conservation and ecology.  Organized originally for bird banders in the central United States and Canada, the Association’s activities and publication are of such broad interest that there are now members in most states and many nations.

Our History

The Inland Bird Banding Association is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that was organized over ninety years ago in 1922, in Chicago, Illinois.  In that same year, IBBA began publishing scientific work for bird banders. The IBBA has been growing ever since and now has members in 34 states and 4 provinces.
