Each season, BBBO hires one or more interns to help with our mist-netting programs. These Research Assistants, Field Assistants, and Data Techs are integral in making our operation run smoothly.
Hailing from Clifton Park, NY, Erin received a BA in Biology from Vassar College, and is nearing completion of an MSc in Conservation Biology and Ecology from Uppsala University in Sweden, where her work focused on habitat restoration for the White-backed Woodpecker. Her interest in ornithological research was first sparked when conducting surveys of saltmarsh wading birds during an internship in southern Maine, and has since led her to working with Northern Saw-whet Owls in the Catskills, Black Grouse in Sweden and seabirds in Finland. In her spare time, Erin enjoys reading, running, hiking, gardening, and – of course – bird watching.
