McGILL BIRD OBSERVATORY

FALL SCHEDULE 2008

Below is the current schedule for the fall 2008 season.  Note that start times represent meeting times at the banding station (not at the gate), so please allow enough time for travel.

This volunteer list will be updated at least weekly and any significant changes to the schedule will be circulated via the MBO mailing list.  To be added/removed for any dates, e-mail us at mbo @ migrationresearch.org.  We need at least one experienced birder and one or two reasonably experienced extractors for banding days.  Dates which are already full are marked in red.

Census takes place along a standard pre-determined route for one hour each morning, beginning one hour after sunrise; it should be done by an experienced birder, but one or two less experienced observers may accompany the censuser.  Banding day start times are scheduled to allow us to have nets open by sunrise, after which they will remain open for 5 hours.  We strongly encourage all volunteers to stay present for the entire morning.

Banders-in-charge (BICs): MAH - Marie-Anne Hudson, BF - Barbara Frei, MAG - Marcel Gahbauer, JHJ - James Junda
 
Census leaders: SRC - Shawn Craik, CMM - Chris Murphy, GEG - Gay Gruner, BAM - Barbara MacDuff, RDT - Rodger Titman
