Exciting job monitoring spotted owls
Spotted Owl Research Intern (Former Employee) – Georgetown, CA – November 26, 2018
A typical day on the job would consist of driving out to our study site from our base, about a two and a half hour drive. Then we would arrive at our first assigned area and complete what was required of us at that site, whether it was sighting an owl, calling for an owl in a territory it had previously not been detected, or capturing an owl. We would then continue onto our next site and complete what was required of us there. This would all be done in the evening and night, until we were finished with our assignments. We then stayed at a campsite in our study area for the rest of the night, until our work started again the next evening.
