Description
SEASONAL AVIAN ECOLOGISTS (2) needed for a University of Georgia study investigating the breeding biology and post-fledging movements and habitat use of Black-throated Blue Warblers and Dark-eyed Juncos at the Coweeta Hydrologic Laboratory in the Southern Appalachians of western North Carolina. Duties include: nest searching/monitoring, banding of adults and nestlings, locating and observing post-fledging family groups, insect and vegetation sampling, and data entry. Field work begins mid to late April and lasts until mid July. A stipend of $1200-$1600 per month, commensurate with experience, will be provided in addition to housing.
