Some volunteers can also be involved in ongoing studies of a few successful nests, all the way into the post-fledge season. Volunteers should have solid raptor identification skills, and be comfortable entering field data into EXCEL spreadsheets. Field time is typically 2 hours per week, however, some of our volunteers are active every other week. Spotting scopes are a plus (scopes can be provided by FRNBES), but binoculars are required.  Please contact Georgia Anderson.

With CrowdMag mobile apps, phones all around the world send magnetometer data to them. At their server, they check the quality of the magnetic data and make data available to the public as aggregate maps and charts. The two long-term goals of this project are to create models of Earth’s time changing magnetic field by combining crowdsourced magnetic data with data collected by ships, aircrafts, and satellites and to map local magnetic noise sources (for e.g. power transformer and iron pipes) to improve accuracy of the magnetic navigation systems.
