      WFO's 36th annual conference will be in Sierra Vista, Arizona August
      17-21, 2011 and registration is now open (go to:
      www.westernfieldornithogists.org and click on the Annual Conference banner in the middle of the page). You
      will probably want to download the Conference Details document and review
      before you begin registration.
      If you've never been to southeast Arizona during the late summer season
      (or even if you have), this is an opportunity you won't want to miss. The
      rains that come during this time create breeding conditions for some species
      and, for others, ideal conditions for molting prior to movement to the
      wintering grounds. This phenomenon of molt migration will be the subject of a
      Keynote address by Peter Pyle during the conference, and will be make the
      field trips particularly interesting. As always, we'll have Science Sessions
      Friday and Saturday afternoons, a wide variety of field trips to all the
      local hotspots, and workshops on topics like flycatcher identification, bird
      banding, study skin preparation, and wilderness first aid. Dan Fischer will
      give a talk about the first naturalists to visit the southwest. We are
      offering pre-and post-meeting field trips to the Chiricahua Mountains and
      California Gulch and a Sunday trip focusing on butterflies and dragonflies. Many
      local experts will be helping us out with workshops and field trips
      including Tony Battiste, Bob Behrstock, Homer Hansen, Melody Kehl, Michael
      Marsden, Ted Mouras, Heather Swanson, Wezil Walraven, Jack Whetstone, Sheri
      Williamson, and Erika Wilson.
      As so many discovered last year, you need to register very early to be
      sure to get your first choice of field trips and workshops, so visit the WFO
      web site (www.westernfieldornithogists.org) right away to see full details
      and to register.
