    AVIAN FIELD TECHNICIANS needed for bird surveys on the Arizona/California border. Are you interested in adventure, great birds, and exploring the desert? If you are answering yes, this may be your ticket to a season in the Southwest. Great Basin Bird Observatory is seeking field technicians to conduct riparian landbird surveys on the lower Colorado River. The field season will begin approximately March 28 and end approximately June 10. Surveyors must be available the entire season. Duties include area searches of all breeding birds and territory mapping, with data collection on tablets and ArcGIS, and pre-survey plot scouting and trail clearing. 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 very hot and sometimes difficult conditions (e.g. dense vegetation, standing water, mosquitos), good communication skills, and a willingness to live and work with a field crew are essential. Surveyors will be hired as seasonal temporary GBBO employees and paid $2100-$2400/month depending on experience. Field vehicles and housing in Ehrenberg, AZ will be provided; some primitive camping will also be required. 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 (Lower Colorado River).
