The Wilson Ornithological Society (WOS) is pleased to announce that registration is open for the 125th anniversary meeting to be held in Williamsburg, Virginia on the campus of the College of William & Mary (7 - 10 March 2013). WOS meetings are known for their unique blend of academic ornithologists and citizen scientists, as well as their extremely welcoming atmosphere for graduate and undergraduate students. The College of William & Mary is a beautiful historic campus surrounded by prime birding opportunities, including breeding red-cockaded woodpeckers. Several first-rate birding trips will be offered. Special symposia on the "History of American Ornithology" and "Birds and Human Disease" will be held, and the plenary speakers are Jed Burtt and Peter & Rosemary Grant.
Abstracts for papers are due in about a month (7 January 2013). Registration information, abstract submission, travel information, and the meeting itinerary are all available at the conference web site: http://www.cvent.com/d/hcqx10
