Assistants required to monitor migrant songbirds and small raptors for both our spring (April 28- June 6) and autumn (July 28-October 31) seasons. Individuals participate in all aspects of our daily protocol including undertaking formal observations, banding, scribing, data entry, and conducting daily station chores. We are located at a remote station on the northern shore of Lake Superior and have been operating for 27 years. Accommodation and food are supplied at no charge to Volunteers offering three or more weeks participation. Short-term assistants are charged a daily fee. We have a fully equipped cabin and a sauna. There is poor internet connectivity but plenty of access to the near boreal forest. Some avian identification and exposure to banding/ringing are assets for applicants and consideration is given to those wishing to learn with enthusiasm. Training will be supplied. Application forms are easily found by searching http://www.tbfn.net/how-to-volunteer Looking forward to hearing from you.
