The Manomet Bird Observatory is looking for a seasonal bander to assist in the operation of its migratory banding station (15 Apr - 15 Jun). Bander will help supervise and train 2 other banders and volunteers in running 50 nets dawn to dusk, five days a week.
Manomet provides housing on 40 acres along Cape Cod Bay. Stipend of $500-$510 per week, depending on experience.
Applicants must have significant experience capturing (using mist-nets) and banding passerines and be familiar with appropriate handling, ageing and sexing techniques. Experience with Eastern birds is most useful, but other North American banders welcome. Enthusiasm for long hours essential. Extra consideration will be given to applicants that enjoy teaching visitors of all ages about birds.
