Each year, volunteer positions are available, monitoring bird migration activities at Thunder Cape Bird Observatory (TCBO), Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada. The field season runs from late Apr to mid June in the spring and from late July to early November in the fall. Volunteers will be involved in mistnetting, banding, and censusing migratory birds, including passerines, hawks and owls. TCBO, located at the tip of the Sibley Peninsula, is bordered by Lake Superior and Sleeping Giant Provincial Park. We provide comfortable facilities in a beautiful wilderness setting. Volunteers staying over 3 weeks will have accommodation and food provided free. Experience is preferred, but TCBO also aims to provide an excellent opportunity for those eager to learn. Volunteers will be accepted throughout the season. Additional information can be found on our website.
