    Raptor Counter needed to conduct, as a contracted service, the 2022 spring season raptor migration count at Onondaga Audubon's Derby Hill Bird Observatory located in Mexico, N.Y. from March 1 - May 31, 2022.  Applicants must be proficient at identifying and enumerating eastern North American hawks, falcons, eagles and vultures at a distance using an established protocol.   The counter is responsible for daily counts, data entry and preparation of a daily log for publication on the Observatory website five days/week (no less than 40 hours/week) as coordinated with the Sanctuary Coordinator.  As appropriate, the counter is expected to engage site visitors about the Observatory's mission and natural history.  The successful candidate will have excellent written and verbal communication skills, demonstrated computer skills, including data entry and use of MS Office, be in good physical condition and be willing to work outdoors for extended periods.  Onondaga Audubon will provide a spotting scope w/tripod for the counter's use.  The counter must provide his/her own binoculars, photographic equipment (not required) and reliable transportation.  On site housing is provided.  Contracted services include the preparation of a report of the count and observations at the conclusion of the season (no later than 6/15).  Compensation for contracted services will range from $5,000 - $6,000 depending upon experience.  Applications will be accepted until January 15, 2022 or until a qualified candidate is selected, whichever occurs first.  Applicants must be US citizens or posses required documentation that they are eligible to be contracted within the United States.  Please email cover letter and resume outlining relevant experience (including contact information and three references) to David Fitch at dfitch52ATgmail.com.
