Recommended Posts

Please join us at the 2011 AOU annual meeting in Jacksonville, Florida, July 24-29 (see fully active website at http://www.birdmeetings.org/aou2011). The conference is located in one of the easiest cities to get to in the east, with excellent connections by air, rail and road. The meeting will be in the four-star Jacksonville Hyatt Regency, right on the river, where we have negotiated nightly rates of $109 single or double.


The scientific program is filling fast, with symposia on Global Change, Avian Use of Second Growth Habitat, and Scrub Jays, as well as workshops on Teaching with Bird Data, and Assessing Landscape Connectivity for Birds. We also have plenary speakers each day, and will hold simultaneous oral platform sessions as well as an evening highlighting poster presentations.


Jacksonville is known for great music, fresh seafood, and miles of the best beaches in the hemisphere. There are lots of places to eat both in the hotel and nearby on the Riverwalk. We have a full social schedule planned with kayak races on the river, Quiz Bowl, Ostrich Uproar 5k run, evening socials and the Awards Banquet.


This part of the world offers immediate access to some of the most stunning coastal and wetland habitat in the southeast. Field trips during and after the meeting will highlight seabirds of the Gulf Stream, salt marsh and coastal habitats, and longleaf pine communities.


The Call for Abstracts is active--deadline for receipt is May 1, 2011. Students, take note of the opportunities for travel and presentation awards on the website. Take advantage of the lower early registration costs (ends 26 June) and get yourself signed up for what promises to be an excellent and stimulating meeting.
