Western Field Ornithologists is now soliciting papers for presentation at its 38th annual conference -- a joint conference with the Washington Ornithological Society, in Olympia, Washington, August 22-25.

Each presentation will be allotted fifteen minutes, including three minutes for questions from and discussion with the audience -- a hallmark of WFO meetings.
