Annual Meetings

Each year, usually in the autumn, IBBA holds an annual conference in a different part of the inland area.  There you can meet amateur and professional banders and ornithologists with a  wide range of interests and discuss mutual concerns.  The two day weekend meeting includes scientific papers and reports, informal talks about birds, workshop sessions on identification and banding techniques, field trips to watch birds and/or observe banding, a business meeting, and annual banquet.
