Opportunity Type: Employment

Career Level: Entry

The Santa Ana Watershed Association (SAWA) is now hiring seasonal, part-time field assistants
to help manage Brown-headed Cowbird traps in the local area. Brown-headed Cowbirds are
trapped during the spring and summer because they are brood parasites, meaning that they do
not build their own nests but lay their eggs in the nests of other species. In doing so, the
cowbirds interfere with the reproductive success of our native birds. SAWA is especially
interested in improving the nesting success of the Least Bell’s Vireo, an endangered bird in
southern California. Trapping cowbirds out of the habitat during the breeding season is helping
the vireo population numbers increase, as well as that of other native songbirds.
