FALL MIGRATION BIRD BANDERS (2) needed from 1 August to 15 November (start and end dates somewhat flexible) to assist with the 24th year of 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. In fall we band over 10,000 birds of an average of 120 species including hummingbirds, shorebirds and raptors. Our station hosts visitors including student groups and members of the public, and the crew includes undergraduate interns and volunteers, so good people skills are a must. The position is for 40 hours a week (with 2 days off). Pay is $12.15/hour. Housing is provided, a personal vehicle is best due to our rural location. Applications must be submitted through Washington College’s website here: https://www.washcoll.edu/people_departments/offices/human-resources/employment/index.php PLEASE USE YOUR LAST NAME IN THE NAME OF YOUR FILES. PDFs are strongly preferred.
