Endangered and Nongame Program Looking For Skilled Birders
Pat Sziber

The Endangered and Nongame Species Program in the NJ Division of Fish and Wildlife needs skilled birders to help conduct surveys of neotropical migrant and resident songbirds breeding in New Jersey.

Baseline surveys were conducted in 1994 and 1995 and this second round will provide data for monitoring population trends, identify changes in critical habitats and survey areas where little or no wildlife data currently exists. Surveys will be conducted with roadside point counts from sunrise to 9:30 a.m. between May 25 and June 15. Participants, who must be able to identify eastern songbirds by sight and sound, must commit to survey a specified area over one or more mornings, prior to the start of the survey. Participants will be paid an hourly wage and reimbursed for mileage.
