Western Field Ornithologists' Annual Meeting, Sept 2009
- Hi, Birders:
WFO (Western Field Ornithologists) and the Idaho Bird Observatory
invite you to the 34th Annual WFO Meeting in Boise, Idaho from
September 10-13, 2009.
For details and to register, go to the WFO web site
and click on the "2009 Annual Conference" button. You can download a
full conference schedule there.
Help celebrate WFO's 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 distinctive 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.
