    SPRING MIGRATION BIRD BANDERS (3) needed from March 1 through May 31st to assist with the 26th year of migration banding at the Foreman’s Branch Bird Observatory (FBBO).  Successful applicants will have extensive mist netting experience (processed at least 1,000 birds) and have at least one season’s experience migration banding.  NABC bander certification is highly desirable.  FBBO is a high-volume station located outside quaint Chestertown MD.  In spring we band an average of 3,400 birds of 102 species including hummingbirds, shorebirds and raptors.  We host various visitors, college classes and undergraduate interns, so experience interpreting avian studies is a plus.  The position is for 40 hours a week (with 2 days off).  Pay is $15.00/hour.  Shared housing is provided, a personal vehicle is best due to our rural location. 

    Applications must be submitted through Washington College’s website here: https://www.washcoll.edu/people_departments/offices/human-resources/employment/index.php    Please make sure your cover letter includes the number of birds you’ve processed. Questions can be directed to Maren Gimpel mgimpel2@washcoll.edu
