You will learn how to identify a range of common forest birds using the Department of Conservation five-minute protocol (5MBC). You will learn how to establish a consistency of data collection, recording and storage and to make the data available for analysis, reporting and subsequent business planning within the required timeframe. The 5MBC course is based on the Dawson and Bull field method. This course uses innovative techniques, such as an online programme and pre-recorded bird calls, to help you identify common forest bird species. This course covers unit standard 26373.
