WFO/NMOS Annual Meeting, July 24-27, Silver City, NM
- First off, sorry for any cross posting.
Secondly, and more importantly -- as time is running out...
The 28th Annual Meeting of the Western Field Ornithologists (WFO) and the
41st Annual Meeting of the New Mexico Ornithological Society will be
jointly held at the campus of Western New Mexico University in Silver City,
New Mexico (USA) from July 24-27, 2003. The theme of the meeting will be
the birds of the Mexican Borderlands, and it will promote exchange of
biological information with professional and amateur ornithologists from
both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border.
Pre-registration is encouraged. Information is available on-line at:
Additionally, WFO is sponsoring a field trip to Chihuahua, Mexico, July
27-31, 2003. Due to recent cancellations, a few spaces are available.
This 5-day birding trip will visit some of the most remote and undeveloped
regions remaining within northern Mexico. We will tour through several
different habitats, from Chihuahuan Desert, to high grasslands, pine-oak
woodlands and the steep mountains of the Sierra Madre Occidental near
Copper Canyon. While the target bird species will be Thick-billed Parrot,
there are numerous other endemic species which we will also hope to see
including Elegant Euphonia, Eared Quetzal, Pine and Tufted Flycatchers,
Black-throated Magpie-Jay, and Military Macaw.
Additional information is available via the above link or directly at:
Hope to see you there.
