  1. A new meeting has been added to the =1']Ornithology Meetings database. Meeting Description: Call for Papers There are three options for presentation: regular Oral Presentations, Lightning Talks (limited to 5 minutes), or Poster. We recommend that Oral Presentations focus on outcomes or evaluation of specific programs: e.g. results of observatory-related research or monitoring; or evaluation of lessons learned in an education, outreach or capacity-building program. Presentations giving a general introduction to an observatory and its programs should be directed to Lightning Talks or Posters. Posters can be on any topic. Presenters may submit multiple abstracts, but if time available for oral presentations is oversubscribed the organizers may ask that extras be converted to posters. Oral Sessions Oral presentations include either full-length talks (15 minutes including questions) or lightning talks (5 minutes no questions). Electronic presentations must be in PowerPoint® format and displayed on conference computers. Presentations may be prepared on computers running software other than MS PowerPoint for Microsoft Windows, but will have to be converted prior to uploading to conference computers. Poster Sessions Posters should fit on panels 3 feet high x 4 feet wide (0.9 X 1.3 m). Materials for hanging posters will be available on site. Poster presenters are required to attend their poster during the poster session. Abstracts Abstracts will be submitted by email, using the format detailed below. Submission deadline is 15 September, 2017. Authors of accepted abstracts will be notified via email on a rolling basis, but no later than 2 October, 2017, along with confirmation of presentation type. Prior to the conference, all authors will be provided with a follow-up email with further instructions and specifying the room, date and time of their presentations. Format (Sample submission below): Full name, mailing and email address for the presenting author. Topic area (e.g. Research and Monitoring, Outreach and Education, Conservation Applications, Organization Capacity-building and Sustainability) Presentation type (Oral, Lightning, Poster) Abstract, formatted as in the sample submission shown below. Use 12 point Times New Roman font throughout. If all authors have the same affiliation, no numbers are needed. Use an asterisk to indicate the author who will present. Abbreviate affiliation to organization and geographic location (state/province for North American locations; nearest city and country for others). Body of abstract must not exceed 250 words. Include key conclusions for the benefit of people who cannot attend your presentation.

  14. Or edit the records in our Grants and Awards database yourself! Just view the record and click the "Edit" button in the bottom right. The database, like most of the resources on this site, is a wiki, meaning its up to the entire community to keep it up to date.
  15. From the Library of Congress record it appears this continues the Occasional papers of the Museum of Zoology 0097-0425 (DLC) 77648673 (OCoLC)1332171. This record needs to be changed to reflect that.
  16. The Lapwing once had many regional names; the Loon has a British-American identity crisis and the respectable-sounding Apostlebird is often called a Lousy Jack. Why do bird names, both common and scientific, change over time and why do they vary so much between different parts of the English-speaking world? Wandering through the scientific and cultural history of ornithology takes us to the heart of understanding the long relationship between birds and people. Lapwings, Loons and Lousy Jacks uncovers the stories behind the incredible diversity of bird names, explains what many scientific names actually mean and takes a look at the history of the system by which we name birds. Ray Reedman explores the natural history and folklore behind bird names, in doing so unlocking the mystery of the name Scoter, the last unexplained common name of a British bird species.
  17. I saw this interesting post on ECOLOG HardwareX, a new open access journal published by Elsevier, established to promote free and open source designing, building and customizing of scientific infrastructure (hardware). Eli maybe this is a home for some of your cool toys
  18. Spring in New Mexico can truly be enchanting. The cottonwoods in the bosque begin to leaf out, our community celebrates the Gathering of Nations Powwow in Albuquerque, and until recently, the High Plains Lesser Prairie Chicken Festival showcased the spring mating ritual of a bird emblematic of the Western plains. Today, however, the lesser prairie chicken is imperiled and needs all the conservation help it can get, including protection under the Endangered Species Act.
