Assistants are required to work in a crew of six undertaking observations, banding, data entry and station activities for our autumn season commencing at the end of July and running until the end of October. We are located at a remote site at the tip of Sleeping Giant Provincial Park on the north shore of Lake Superior. Access is primarily by boat or by a 13 km trail. Volunteers offering their services for 3-6 weeks are provided with accommodation and food. Short term individuals are charged a small daily fee. During our autumn season, we encounter Common Nighthawks, Northern Saw-whet Owls and hundreds of boreal passerines. In tandem with daily formal observations we operate both mist and hawk nets. Consideration is given to those who have identification abilities of eastern birds of North America and those who have some handling experience. Training is provided.
