Western Field Ornithologists meeting
- WFO (Western Field Ornithologists) and the Idaho Bird Observatory invite
you the 34th Annual WFO Conference in Boise, Idaho from September 10-13,

WFO will be celebrating our 40th anniversary. In addition to the usual
great field trips, skills workshops, and scientific paper presentations, this
year we feature a keynote talk and special field trip on what may well be
the next new North American species, the South Hills Crossbill. Dr. Craig
Benkman will discuss his work on this distinct crossbill and its co-evolution
with its 'prey', lodgepole pine cones. A Sunday field trip will visit the
South Hills area to look for this bird. This is an outstanding example of
what WFO is all about, fostering the link between ornithology and birding.
