  • Spring Bird Banding Intern

    Guest Ben Nickley
    • Employer: Berkshire Bird Observatory
      Location: Berkshires, Massachusetts
      Country: United States
      Last Date to Apply: 02/15/2024
      Open Until Filled: Yes

    Berkshire Bird Observatory is hiring a songbird banding intern for this spring season.  We are looking for someone who *loves* birds and is eager to gain banding experience.

    Our spring season runs from April 1st through May 31st.

    We will provide great housing in the best region in the US--the Berkshires of western Massachusetts.

    We can also provide a modest stipend of $2,000.


    A love of birds and banding. Ability to work early mornings, potentially 7 day/week. We're looking for someone who doesn't consider bird banding 'work'.  Good ID skills of eastern birds and a desire to learn more about ID and ageing and sexing birds in the hand.  College degree in biological field preferred (though not required). Some field experience and love the outdoors. Great dexterity. Ability to hike quickly over hilly terrain. Ability to deal with biting insects and (rattle)snakes with good humor! Banding experience is great but not required.

    We particularly welcome applications from underrepresented groups in science and ecology!

    If you're interested, please email a cover letter and your CV as a combined PDF with "BBO spring intern (your name)" in the subject line to Ben: ben@berkshirebirds.org
