    Raptor Trapping and Banding Internship

    Hands-on, full-time internship that will help you learn to identify, trap, and band raptors during the fall migration. We are looking for 2 interns that have some mist net experience and song bird identifications skills but need experience with raptors to further their goals for graduate school and a career in ornithology or the environmental sciences. Our season starts on August 15th and lasts until November 15th.

    The Cedar Grove Ornithological Research Station in Wisconsin has been in operation every fall since 1953.  Over the years we have banded more than 45,000 raptors and owls of 24 species. We watch for hawks from dawn to dusk and work active lures to bring them into our net systems. During October and November, mist nets are set up in the evening to trap owls and are checked by the interns throughout the night.  Interns will learn mist net raptor removal techniques, trap building and maintenance, raptor handling from eagles to saw whets, passerine identification, and raptor banding techniques. Internships are for the full 90 days and the interns participate in all activities. A strong core of experienced volunteers helps the interns with banding and trapping raptors. The interns live on the site and are responsible for maintaining the station, trapping fields, housekeeping, and all other aspects of a field station.  A stipend of $15 a day will be provided, along with food and housing on the site.  Check us out on Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/cgorstation.  Applications will be taken until March 31st.
