since this topic has been brought up I'll forward a related 'job' posting a 
fellow C-birder had forwarded to me:


Job announcement (and please forward to other state and national
listservs and send me(Dr. Remsen) copies of the postings):

Two experienced birders needed for 30-day intensive search for
Ivory-billed Woodpecker in Pearl River area, Louisiana.

Carl Zeiss Sports Optics, a division of Carl Zeiss Optical, Inc., will
sponsor an intensive search for Ivory-billed Woodpeckers in the bottomland 
forests of the Pearl River area of southeastern Louisiana.  Zeiss will 
sponsor two people (@ $2,000/person) to conduct an organized, systematic 
search of the area, working as a 2-person team for 30 days.  Those selected 
for the team must be experienced birders able to negotiate difficult, remote 
terrain on foot, by canoe, and by ORV.  This search must be conducted before 
spring leaf-out, namely completed by early March 2002.

The search will be planned by and coordinated with personnel for the
Louisiana Dept. Wildlife & Fisheries (which can also provide lodging at
Pearl River Wildlife Management Area). The goal will be to determine
whether Ivory-bills are present there and to obtain videos for
documentation.  For further details, contact Dr. J. V. Remsen at
