    • Employer: Washington College's Foreman's Branch Bird Observatory
      Location: Chestertown, MD
      Country: United States
      Last Date to Apply: No value
      Open Until Filled: Yes

    FALL MIGRATION BIRD BANDERS (2) needed from 1 August to 15 November (start and end dates somewhat flexible) to assist with the 21st year of fall migration banding at the Foreman’s Branch Bird Observatory (FBBO).  Successful applicants will have extensive mist netting experience (processed at least 1000 birds) and must have at least one season’s experience of migration banding.  NABC bander certification is highly desirable.  FBBO is a high-volume station located outside Chestertown MD.  We band an average of 120 species in fall including hummingbirds, shorebirds and raptors.  We also run a saw-whet season, though this is a voluntary activity.  Our station hosts many visitors including student groups and members of the public, requiring good interpersonal skills.  The position is for 40 hours a week (2 days off).  Since we start early, you will have afternoons free. Area birding is excellent.  Pay will be at least $10.10/hour.  Housing will be arranged.  Applications must be submitted through Washington College’s website here: https://www.washcoll.edu/offices/human-resources/employment.php   Questions can be directed to Maren Gimpel mgimpel2@washcoll.edu  More information about the field station can be found at our website www.washcoll.edu/crfrs
