Did you know that in April of this year, a new bird banding and migration monitoring station is opening in Thunder Bay, Ontario? McKellar Island Bird Observatory will be located on McKellar island in Thunder Bay!
Feel free to check out their website and become a member to receive newsletters regarding the happenings at the observatory! You can also adopt a bird!
ALSO – They are looking for VOLUNTEERS – bird bander interns, scribes, observers, interpreters and extractors. We have flexible shifts and offer training. This is an excellent opportunity to learn more about birds and techniques used to monitor them.
McKellar Island is accessible by road, 10 minutes from intercity Thunder Bay. There is no public transportation and volunteers will need to supply their own transport.
