Volunteers Needed to Band Marsh Sparrows

Aaron Given is looking for some intrepid volunteers that would like to help with his marsh sparrow banding research project this winter on Kiawah Island in South Carolina.  The target species are Seaside, Nelson’s, and Saltmarsh Sparrows.  This work involves being in the saltmarsh at high tide and flushing sparrows into nets.  It can be quite strenuous exercise but is also a lot of fun too!    Participants need to be in good health and prepared to get wet and muddy.  Rubber knee boots or hip waders are sufficient for most sites.  If you are interested in helping with this project please contact Aaron.
