Contract Work

I am available for short-term or periodic long-term contract jobs involving bird surveys or bird monitoring. The following is a list of my related experience and publications. This list might not be up to date. Please contact me at alixdentremont AT hotmail.com for a complete and up to date version of my resume.


RELATED EXPERIENCE:

July 2016 - April 2017
The work involved bird monitoring at the site of restoration of the lighthouse at Cape Sable, Shelburne County, Nova Scotia, Canada, as well as the routes taken by the contractors to reach the site. Special attention was given to species listed in the Species at Risk Act that are regularly found at Cape Sable like the “Endangered” rufa subspecies of Red Knot, Piping Plover and Roseate Tern; the “Threatened” Short-eared Owl and princeps subspecies of Savannah Sparrow; as well as the “Special Concern Species” such as the anatum Peregrine Falcon. The Bobolink, a species listed provincially as “Vulnerable” in the Nova Scotia Endangered Species Act, will also be monitored for. The area is also listed by BirdLife International as an Important Bird Area (IBA) due in part to the significant number of birds that use the area during migration, particularly shorebirds. Other reasons for the IBA designation are the breeding Piping Plovers and American Oystercatchers.
