  1. Due to the continued problems associated with Covid, the RRF and The Peregrine Fund made the difficult decision to change the format of the joint conference of the Raptor Research Foundation and the Neotropical Raptor Network from an in-person meeting in Boise, Idaho to a virtual format. With less than 2 months until our conference begins, our conference planning team is quickly adjusting our meeting plans to share 300+ presentations with you online. We ask for your patience as our volunteers reformat the conference. Our planning committee will be updating the RRF website as the conference program takes shape in the weeks ahead. We hope you will be able to join us online with the new virtual format. The post Conference Updates appeared first on Raptor Research Foundation. View the full article
  2. Robert B. Berry: 2021 Recipient of the Raptor Research Foundation’s and The Peregrine Fund’s Partners for Raptors Lifetime Achievement Award Robert Berry rappels to an Orange-Breasted Falcon nest. Photo by Matt Allshouse.Robert B. Berry, a falconer with few peers in our time, has dedicated his life to conserving, monitoring, and studying threatened raptors, and to building a network of people and resources to ensure the future of raptor conservation. Bob was on the forefront of the early efforts to stem the DDT-induced decline of Peregrine Falcons in North America. He was one of the founders of The Peregrine Fund and was the founding president of the North American Raptor Breeder’s Association, where he served as president for 28 years. His pioneering work with captive breeding, especially artificial insemination and reintroduction techniques, was instrumental in the remarkably successful recovery of the Peregrine, culminating in the species being taken off the U.S. Endangered Species List—an event that happens far too rarely. The techniques he helped refine have been crucial to the success of reintroduction programs for a wide variety of raptors around the world. Not all of Bob’s research time devoted to raptors has been in the breeding barns. He was instrumental in developing radio-telemetry for use in falconry and field research, ran a long-term banding program with Scott Ward monitoring the southbound Peregrine migration along the east coast of the U.S., and spent considerable time in Central America in search of the exciting and elusive Orange-breasted Falcon, the subject of much of his research over the past few decades. More than 40 researchers associated with the Orange-breasted Falcon recovery program have received support from Bob (https://www.peregrinefund.org/projects/orange-breasted-falcon). Bob has published the results of his research in the Condor, the Journal of Wildlife Management, the Journal of the Raptor Research (of course), the Living Bird, and Cornell’s Birds of the World database, as well as several popular magazines and edited volumes. Bob’s interest, influence, and generous financial support extend beyond birds of prey. He has provided leadership and guidance to several ornithological and conservation organizations, including the Midwest Peregrine Society, Cornell’s Laboratory of Ornithology, and the Wyoming chapter of The Nature Conservancy. Bob has supported and guided the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and especially its citizen science project, eBird. His vision for and support of eBird have helped enable that project to take off globally, becoming a game-changing global database on bird distribution and abundance, and empowering birders around the work to make their observations count for science and conservation. Bob and his wife Carol S. Berry have directed much of their philanthropy to ensure the future of raptor researchers, raptor conservationists, and the raptors he so cherishes, but they have also given generously to higher education, including their establishment of an endowed position in Ecology at the University of Wyoming and providing research funds which contributed to the training and success of more than 50 ecology graduate and undergraduate students at the University of Wyoming. Finally and fittingly, I will end this necessarily incomplete catalog of Bob Berry’s accomplishments with one I know he is proud of—the establishment of the Archives of American Falconry in honor of his mentor, James N. Rice. Rob Bierregaard 29 June 2021 Additional information about the Partners for Raptors Lifetime Achievement Award can be found on the award’s website.

  3. Winners of the RRF 2020 Awards and Grants We are pleased to announce the recipients of the 2020 Raptor Research Foundation awards and grants program. Please join us in congratulating these talented members of our raptor community. The next application period for these grants and awards will begin in early 2021. Research Grants Leslie Brown Memorial Grant: The Brown Grant provides financial assistance to promote the research and/or the dissemination of information on African birds of prey. Evan R. Buechley from HawkWatch International won for the project titled “First assessment of the Bearded Vulture in Ethiopia: quantifying population size and spatial ecology to inform conservation”. Stephen R. Tully Memorial Grant: The Tully Grant supports research and conservation of raptors specifically to students and amateurs with limited access to alternative funding. Brittanie L. Loftin from Angelo State University won for the project “Population Genetics of Mississippi Kites in the Great Plains”. Dean Amadon Grant: The Amadon Grant assists researchers working in the area of distribution and systematics of raptors. Lily Martin from the University of Georgia for the project titled “Using acoustic spatial capture-recapture to estimate Eastern Screech-Owl density and the effects of anthropogenic noise in the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area, Georgia.” Oscar Beingolea Raptor Research Grant: The Oscar Beingolea Raptor Research Award provides financial support for field research on raptors in Latin America (including the Guianas) and the Caribbean. Beatriz M. Miranzo from the Center for the Study and Conservation of Raptors in Argentina won for her research project: “Identifying and characterizing potential mortality sites for birds of prey associated with the presence of water reservoirs in ecosystems in the semi-arid zone of central Argentina. Can mortality be mitigated by placing rescue ramps in water reservoirs?” Achievement Awards Tom Cade Award: The Cade Award recognizes an individual who has made significant advances in the areas of captive propagation and reintroduction of raptors. Àlex Llopis Dell, Vulture Conservation Foundation, Head of the Bearded Vulture Captive Breeding Unit in Spain. His key career highlights include 1) First to breed Lesser Grey Shrike in captivity and created a new rearing protocol so that young chicks were able to capture live prey and 2) developed new protocols and methods made it possible to successfully raise, release and pair bearded vultures. Fran and Frederick Hamerstrom Award: The Hamerstrom Award recognizes an individual who has contributed significantly to the understanding of raptor ecology and natural history. The award committee recognized two recipients in 2020. Clayton B. White, Brigham Young University, USA James R. Belthoff, Boise State University, USA Service Awards President’s Award: This award is given by the President in recognition and appreciation of exceptional service to the Raptor Research Foundation. Rob Bierregaard, Drexel University, USA Clint Boal, USGS and Texas Tech University, USA Miguel Saggese, Western University of Health Sciences, USA RRF is thankful for these committee leadership of the award and grant committee chairs and many committee members: Sofi Hindmarch, RRF Award Committee Chair Jennifer Coulson, Fran and Frederick Hamerstrom Award Chair and Tom Cade Award Chair Jim Harper, James Koplin Award Chair Isabel Caballero, Dean Amadon Grant Chair Jean Francois Therrien, Stephen R.
