Bird banding in Australia (1964)
If the field biologist is to advise on the conservation of rare birds and the control of pests, he must be able to study birds in their natural environment and to record their pattern of behaviour over a number of years. But first, he must be able to identify individuals in a species.
This film shows how registered banders, trained in handling wild birds, encourage them to enter traps so that they can be marked with numbered metal bands. It explains how members of the general public can help the field biologist in his studies by reporting any banded birds that they find.
