Volunteers wanted for fieldwork on ruffs in spring 2010 in NL
Volunteers are wanted for an ongoing capture-recapture program on the Ruffs, Philomachus pugnax. The project is under the supervision of Prof. Dr.
Theunis Piersma, head of the Animal Ecology Group of the University of Groningen. The fieldwork consists in the monitoring colour-banded birds in Southwest Friesland, a characteristic Dutch meadow area along the shore of Lake IJsselmeer in the north of The Netherlands. We collect data on the timing of migration, habitat use, phenotype characteristics, feeding and reproductive behaviour of the birds; but
you will also assist with the banding of the birds, blood sampling, and data entry.
