    AVIAN FIELD TECHNICIANS needed for bird surveys in northern and central Arizona with Great Basin Bird Observatory.  The field season will run from May through July, with the additional possibility of work earlier or later. Surveys use the IMBCR point count protocol, identifying and measuring distance to all birds detected and performing brief habitat assessments at each point. The most competitive applicants will have at least one field season of experience surveying passerines by sight and sound (preferably southwestern birds). The ability to hike in sometimes difficult conditions (e.g. dense vegetation, steep terrain); good communication skills with coworkers, landowners, and the public; ability to work long hours alone; and good bird identification skills are essential. Surveyors will be hired as seasonal temporary GBBO employees and paid $2100-$2400/month depending on experience. Field vehicles will be provided; most of the season will be spent camping. Per federal government regulations, all technicians will be required to show proof of full COVID-19 vaccination or an approved exemption. Please send a cover letter and resume (including the names, phone numbers, and e-mail addresses of 3 references) to Lauren Harter (email harter AT gbbo.org) by February 1 and include the position(s) you would like to be considered for (Arizona IMBCR).
