  • Fall Migration Bird Banders (3)

    • Employer: 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 (3) needed from August 1 through November 15 (dates somewhat flexible) to assist with the 26th year of migration banding at the Foreman’s Branch Bird Observatory (FBBO).  Successful applicants will have extensive mist netting experience (processed at least 1,000 birds), be fast but safe extractors, 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 quaint Chestertown MD.  In fall we band an average of 10,000 birds of 120 species including hummingbirds, shorebirds and raptors (amazing diversity for a passerine station).  The position is for 40 hours a week (with 2 days off) and pays $15.00/hour.  There is very little after banding work and lots of excellent birding in the area. Shared housing is provided at no additional cost, a personal vehicle is best due to our rural location.  Applications must be submitted through Washington College’s website here: https://www.paycomonline.net/v4/ats/web.php/jobs/ViewJobDetails?job=9348&clientkey=DA71CF6827C59F768030B3905BDF8A6A (listed as Research Assistant - Bird Bander)
