  1. needed for ~6 weeks, beginning ~May 4, to assist with spot-mapping density surveys of Cerulean Warblers and other target species in the Daniel Boone National Forest near Morehead, KY. We will also search for returning color-banded Cerulean Warblers and attempt to recapture any encountered birds that were geolocator-tagged in 2017 as part of a range-wide migratory connectivity project. Ability to identify eastern forest songbird by sight and sound is required, and previous experience with spot-mapping and/or point counts is preferred. Those with experience target-netting forest songbirds and with experience working with Cerulean Warblers will be given preference. There will be ~2 weeks of vegetation and habitat surveys, and so ability to identify eastern trees is also desired. Strong applicants will have a passion for bird conservation, be capable of working in a rugged forested setting (with steep slopes, dense vegetation, etc.), and work well in teams. Field vehicle is provided and we will be camping at a developed campground on a lake (Zilpo Campground). Pay is $2250 for the ~six-week field season. Please send a cover letter highlighting your related field experience, a resume/CV, and contact information of three references to: Doug Raybuck at the University of Tennessee (email draybuck@vols.utk.edu).
