The Hilliardton Marsh Research and Education Centre is looking for motivated passionate bird loving individuals who are looking for a bird banding experience in the boreal forest of north eastern Ontario. We are a high volume station that typically bands over 90 species of birds each year and usually bands over 10,000 individuals. Volunteers will be trained to safely take birds out of nets and traps and volunteers will gain lots of experience banding birds under supervision of our bander in charge. As well as 23 species of warblers and the various species of sparrows vireos and thrush volunteers will also have the chance to band hummingbirds and the occasional hawk Merlin and kestrel that we can get. Our banding season goes from May 1st to June 12th but dates can be flexible. Preference will be given to candidates that have previous experience but we are also looking for people with birding skills who are looking for a banding experience. Please send resumes to our banding coordinator Bruce Murphy by email firstname.lastname@example.org. It is worth mentioning that we can now offer accommodation that boasts a brand new building that has showers, and a flush toilet!! We also have wifi to allow people to work on courses if need be while they are here. If you are looking for a bird and banding in the boreal forest then the Hilliardton Marsh is the place for you. Please check out our website facebook and instagram accounts to see what we are about and what you can expect.
