Voluntariado con aves en California

Who: I'm a postdoctoral researcher at Princeton University with oven ten years of experience running field projects in various countries. See my website at http://www.danbaldassarre.weebly.com for more info about me.

What: My current research is on the breeding biology and movement ecology of the phainopepla. You will help me scout out a field site in the oak woodlands of Southern California. The work will entail traveling to 3-4 separate field sites, surveying them for birds, nest searching, and capturing/banding adults via mist net. I'm looking for a highly-motivated and energetic person who can think on their feet. A positive attitude and a desire to learn is much more important to me than tons of field experience, so please apply even if you're green! There is no funding for a stipend, but the project will cover transportation, housing, and food.

Where: Several field sites in the Los Angeles area including the Santa Monica Mountains, Starr Ranch Audubon Sanctuary, and Tejon Ranch Conservancy.

When: Approximately a month from June 19 to July 19, although exact dates are still flexible.

Why: Because phainopeplas are enigmatic and fun birds to work with!

TO APPLY: Please email a cover letter, CV, and contact information for three references to danieltb@princeton.edu.
