birds in Southwest Friesland, a characteristic Dutch meadow area along
the shore of Lake IJsselmeer in the north of The Netherlands. We collect

feeding and reproductive behavior of the birds; but you will also assist
with the banding of the birds, blood sampling, and data entry.
Volunteers and students involved will live together. Applicants need to
have good social skills, a driver licence, experience with handling
birds and color-ring reading is preferred but command of Dutch or
Frisian is not necessary ;-). We provide housing and field equipment.

pending grant applications). TO APPLY: Please send a resume/CV, a cover
