The Virginia listserv mentions a very female King Eider at Chincoteague
NWR. If it is really an Eider, it's probably a sickly one; not only is it
too far south and wayyyyyyy out of season, but it was reported from a
*fresh*water impoundment to boot! Very wierd... And a pelagic trip off
Georgia June 24 sighted a White-tailed Tropicbird. Doesn't look like Brian
P. has any trips going in July, but there are several slated for August...
A new addition to Jack Siler's archives: the "Birding Jobs" e-mail list.
Not quite sure what the deal is with this one, but several interesting
possibilities there, a few good paying jobs (including a couple of federal
GS-12 positions), and lots of internships and volunteer spots for young
folks looking for experience or older folks with time on their hands.
Don't see any here in the Carolinas; the closest might be a conservation
internship (paid) in Maryland with Ducks Unlimited. Several projects in
tropical areas (Chile, Ecuador, Australia, Hawai'i) and one or two in
remote, interesting parts of Alaska, and of course some in the usual lower
48 states. See
Led a NHAS dragonfly-watching trip to Occoneechee Mountain today; the
first pond was so full of dragonflies, we spent the whole 3 hours there! A
list of those species should show up on the odonate listserv shortly. In
the bird department, an Indigo Bunting was singing the whole time we were
there, and a male Ruby-throated Hummingbird greeted us from the phone
lines above the parking lot as we arrived. One Chimney Swift and a few
Turkey Vultures overhead, not much else...
