Ivory-Billed Woodpecker update with 

Dr. Geoffrey Hill

Auburn University

Dr. Hill is looking for Researchers to help in next year's fieldwork.

We are currently taking applications for full-time searchers for the 2006/2007 field season. The minimum time commitment is January 2 to May 30, 2007. Searchers willing to work through Christmas and New Year holidays are also especially needed. Stipend is $1200/mo with no benefits. Anyone willing to join the full-time search without receiving a stipend will get special consideration. Searchers will live in a remote camp in a tent or in a bunkhouse and must purchase their own food. Please send resume, contact info for two references, and a page summarizing why you want to be part of the search, your level of physical fitness, and your skills as a kayaker, canoeist, hiker, and birder to Brian Rolek at Applications received before Oct 15, 2006 will get first consideration.

Freelance birders may send descriptions of sightings or sound detections to Geoff Hill at
