    Description

    The year 2002 marks the 100th anniversary of scientific bird banding in North America. Credit for the first banding goes to Dr. Paul Bartsch of the Smithsonian Institution, who in 1902, banded 23 Black-crowned Night-Herons (Nycticorax nycticorax) at Washington, DC (Bartsch 1904). Others, especially P. A. Taverner, Leon Cole, and the American Bird Banding Association, were involved with in the early development of bird banding in North America, but none was so influential as Frederick C. Lincoln. Building on previous attempts to organize bird banding, Lincoln formed a continental program that today remains a cornerstone of avian research, management and conservation.
