Seeking enthusiastic long-term (4-6 weeks) Volunteers for both of our spring and autumn seasons. Our protocol involves making daily formal observations from a platform and banding passerines and small raptors for 7 hours each day. In addition, the autumn effort involves the dedicated capture of Northern Saw-whet Owls. Some experience in identification of eastern avian species and waterfowl is a major asset. Banding training and advancement is undertaken as time allows. Accommodation, food, and transportation to and from Thunder Bay is provided to those participating for 3 or more weeks. Short-term Volunteers are charged a daily fee. The station is located on the north shore of Lake Superior accessible either by boat or a 12 km. hike.
