Position #: 1174
OrganizationRocky Point Bird Observatory
Position: Sewing bird bags
Impact Statement: Your contribution helps with the daily monitoring of bird migration in the Greater Victoria Area, and is a super way to contribute to Citizen Science
Description: Your bird bags will be used to keep birds safe, dry and warm while they are being transported from the nets to the bird banding table. At Rocky Point Bird Observatory, we wash the bags after each use to minimize risk of transferring pathogens between birds. The frequent washing increases the wear and tear on the bags. Since we occasionally have more than 175 birds to band in a day and we need several days’ supply of bags on hand, we are in constant need of replacements. Thank you for helping us keep our stock up!
