Subj: [birders] Detroit River Hawk Watch seeks  Fall 2016 counter



 
FALL 2016 PAID RAPTOR  COUNTER/S NEEDED (September 1 - November 30) to 
continue raptor  migration monitoring for the Detroit River Hawk Watch 
(http://www.drhawkwatch.org/). Annual monitoring began in  1983 and documents one of 
the most significant fall raptor migrations in  North America. 

The site has spectacular annual  flights of broad-winged hawks, golden 
eagles, and all eastern raptors,  including reliable passages of Swainson's 
hawk. There have only been  six primary counters since 1998 and most return for 
multiple  seasons. We seek individuals who  enjoy working with volunteer 
counters and communicating with visitors.  Applicants must have some initial 
field biological experience and extremely  high personal interest in raptor 
migration. Good writing skills are essential for daily and  end-of-season 
summary reports. 

We are very willing to work with student  schedules and contract on a 
part-time basis ensuring the entire season is  covered. Contract will be through 
the International Wildlife  Refuge Alliance, which is a non-profit (501c3) 
organization furthering the  mission of the Detroit River International 
Wildlife Refuge.
