    Are you interested in observing and banding migrating birds for science? Then, you can volunteer at Cabot Head Research Station on beautiful Bruce Peninsula in Ontario. The Bruce Peninsula Bird Observatory (www.bpbo.ca) is looking for volunteers to assist the Station Scientist/ bander-in-charge, in spring (April 15 - June 10) and in fall (August 15 - October 31) migration monitoring. Ability to identify birds by sound, and or experience extracting birds from mist nets is most useful. 


    Housed on site in a well-furnished cottage, volunteers help in all aspects of the observatory activities. Every day, banding starts half an hour before sunrise. During 6 hours, the 15 mist nets are checked every half hour and captured birds are retrieved and brought back to the banding lab where they are banded. Observations also take place at the same time. Immediately after, data for the day are compiled. 


    To get more information, visit our website at www.bpbo.ca and register as volunteer or contact Stéphane Menu (bander in charge) at stefmenu@gmail.com
