Description: The fourth workshop of the Western Hemisphere Bird Banding Network (WHBBN) was held at the 25th International Ornithological Congress in Compos do Jordão, Brazil on August 22, 2010. 38 individuals representing 11 countries within the Americas attended the congress, as well as individuals from Australia and the UK. A total of 6 people were able to attend the workshop with the support of US Fish and Wildlife Service and private donors. During the workshop, the status and achievements of the Network to date were evaluated, and a series of presentations on issues relevant to the Network were given. To enable new members to understand banding capacity within the Americas, short summaries of country schemes and projects were given by individuals from their respective countries. Following each presentation, a brief discussion was conducted to address the key issues of each topic. This was the first time since 2006 that it has been possible for participants across banding programs/projects to meet. Project representatives from Argentina,Brazil, Bolivia, Canada, Costa Rica Paraguay, Peru, and the United States presented. Following this meeting, we identified a series of issues within the programs discussed. We then delegated tasks amongst the participants to work towards an overall improvement within the Network.
