    We are looking for volunteer field assistants for mist-netting and observing flocking Silver-throated tits (Aegithalos glaucogularis) and Black-throated tits (Aegithalos concinnus) from November 20, 2019 to January 15, 2020. The project will be conducted in the Dongzhai National Nature Reserve in central China. Volunteers are expected to assist in mist-netting the two species, observing the flocks and identifying the color-banded individuals.

    3. Be physically fit for field work and willing to work for long and irregular time in the field.
