Used bird-related field equipment?

Hi Everyone,


Is there a forum/website/etc where people are selling or donating their used bird-related field equipment (e.g. mist-nets, poles, banding pliers, etc.)?  I have bought a lot of equipment out-of-pocket over the years, but I'm faced with a larger purchase of equipment for the upcoming field season.  I think a lot of people can relate to this problem after using their PhD lab's equipment for many years and then moving on to a non-bird lab for their post doc or starting their own research program.


My colleague Kiyoko and I are attempting to crowdfund to cover some equipment costs (https://www.instrumentl.com/campaigns/urbanization-and-galapagos-birds/) but most of the money raised will probably just cover travel.  


Thanks for any insight!
