The WBBA will meet at the peak of landbird migration for its annual meeting at the Humboldt Bay Bird Observatory. HBBO is situated beside an estuary within Humboldt Bay National Wildlife Refuge. Near Arcata, home of Humboldt State University, it is in the mild, coastal climate of northwestern California. Nearby rivers, wetlands, and old-growth redwoods offer plenty of possibilities for birding trips and recreation.


The meeting is not to be missed, and will have exciting demonstrations and workshops on a diverse array of bird research, banding, data management, and analysis of banding data. Located at a long-running banding site that has operated nets and traps for more than 30 years, two stations a half mile apart will be operating in a riparian corridor amongst a coastal dune forest and pastures. The station will offer camping with outdoor cooking facilities with several motels only 15 minutes away. Evening sessions will include catered meals, campfires and live music.


Paper and poster presentations can reflect original research, summarize existing information, or address the use of banding as a tool in avian research and monitoring. NABC certifications for banders and trainers are also planned (EM: krh@klamathbird.org). Please submit abstracts for papers or workshops electronically by 15 August to LINDA LONG (EM: lllong@fs.fed.us), specifying workshop, paper, or poster.


For additional information on abstract submission and about WBBA's 2014 meeting, please visit the WBBA website (http://www.westernbirdbanding.org/next-meetings.html), or contact C.J. RALPH (EM: c.ralph@humboldt.edu PH: 707 499-9707).
