Successful applicants will have extensive mist netting experience (processed at least 1000 birds) and must have at least one season’s experience of migration banding.

In spring we band an average of 3500 birds of 100 species including hummingbirds, shorebirds and raptors.

The position is for 40 hours a week (with 2 days off). Area birding is excellent. Pay will be $10.50/hour. Housing will be arranged.
