    My name is Nick Liadis and I am an independent avian conservation biologist based in Pittsburgh, PA. I have my own master banding permit from the BBL and currently do stopover habitat banding in spring and fall. I also do window collision work. My background in both architecture and in bird banding has supported my conservation work in urban environments. 

    I am looking for mutually beneficial collaborations with:

    1. Non-profits/501c3s. Currently seeking a fiscal sponsor with a science organization. This contractual relationship would be  between myself and the sponsoring organization, allowing me to apply for grant money that I could not access as an individual. In turn, I am an agent of the non-profit. This can be a marketable relationship. And one that we could also leverage for grant writing for a project of our own invention. If you are unfamiliar with fiscal sponsorship, please let me know if you have any questions. 


    2. Individuals. Broadly seeking collaborators for banding, window collision, or conservation projects. I am a creative thinker and would be interested in brainstorming with folks. If you have a seemingly endless list of bird-focused conservation ideas like myself, let's chat and see if there are any affinities. I’m driven to get things off the ground, even in atypical ways. 

    My hope is that a post like this might support the creation of relationships that might otherwise go unrealized. Let’s figure out how to conserve birds and their habitats and get paid doing it!

    A couple more points to make about me:

    • Not constrained by location. 
    • Enjoys thinking outside of the box.
    • Open to networking.
    • Bird banding training comes from the Powdermill Avian Research Center and the Point Reyes Bird Observatory (Point Blue Conservation Science)
