    AVIAN FIELD TECHNICIANS (up to 5) needed for bird surveys on the
    Arizona/California border. Great Basin Bird Observatory is seeking field technicians to
    conduct riparian landbird surveys for a long-term monitoring project on the lower
    Colorado River. The field season will begin March 27 and end June 9. 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 $2200-$2400/month depending on experience. Field vehicles
    and housing will be provided; some primitive camping will also be required. GBBO
    requires all technicians 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@gbbo.org) and
    include the position(s) you would like to be considered for in the subject line (Lower
    Colorado River). Positions will be open until filled.
