Field Research Coordinator Seasonal Position: Audubon Connecticut is seeking a Field Research Coordinator for the Habitat Oases for Migrating Songbirds project - a study on the feeding and habitat preferences of migratory songbirds at stop-over sites in Connecticut. This is part of a flyway-wide effort to identify, improve and conserve important stop-over sites in urban landscapes. The position is for 20 hours per week from April 2 - June 24, and then again from August 20 - October 22. Applicants available for only the spring season will be considered as well, but preference will be given to those available for both seasons.
Duties include conducting surveys of migratory songbirds at stop-over sites in Fairfield and New Haven counties, including measuring distribution and abundance of birds as well as recording the specific plants in which migrating birds are feeding; conducting vegetation surveys; setting up transects at study sites; recruiting, training and coordinating volunteers to assist with songbird surveys; and data management.
Applicant must have excellent bird and plant identification skills, experience managing data sets, strong interpersonal skills to motivate and work with volunteers, and have strong organizational skills.
Free housing is available at the Audubon Center in Greenwich.
