David Lamble

David was a high school chemistry teacher for 35 years. Now retired, he is a singer, actor and TV host, and more importantly, a Master Bird Bander – one of only 100 in Canada.

Since 1978 he has banded 171,759 birds of 193 species, but who’s counting. As David says, “I am not good at keeping track…the totals are really personal goals/achievements…banding is not a competitive sport.”

David spends about 200 days a year in the Luther Marsh Wildlife Management Area north of Grand Valley where he meticulously documents each banding to better understand the habitat and needs of birds.
