Hi folks - looks like a good job for someone interested in working on birds of the shrub-steppe! I volunteer every spring on a Breeding Bird Survey in E Washington, and know how important it is to keep the CRP lands intact - - otherwise, the fallow wheat lands produce only feeding grounds for horned larks....
