  1. The 2015 AOU/COS conference will be on the University of Oklahoma campus, which is about 20 miles and 40 minutes from the nearest airport (OKC). To reduce costs, we recommend you seek out other conference attendees arriving to OKC around the same time and share rides in rental cars or taxis. The recommended taxi service is Airport Express. They will transport groups of five to the OU campus for $50 ($38 for the first person and $3 for each additional). There may also be a $1 off coupon posted online soon (check back here or on the meeting website for updates). Reservations are not required for

  3. The Joint Student Affairs Committee of the AOU and COS are collecting donations for the Silent Auction being held Wednesday July 29th – Friday July 31st (6:00 pm closing) at the 2015 Annual Meeting in Norman, Oklahoma. Donations and bids help make student activities including workshops, student-professional socials, and the quiz bowl possible. Good items include books and other media, field gadgetry, jewelry, art, services, gift certificates, and bird/nature paraphernalia (also this year we have a framer who has generously offered to frame loose leaf artwork if sent in advance). You can bring
  4. Folks, Nearly two years after we conceived of the idea at the AOU/COS meeting in Chicago, Norbert Cordeiro, Jeff Stratford and I proudly release this Special Issue of Biological Conservation: Ecology and Conservation of Avian Insectivores of the Rainforest Understory: A Pan-Tropical Perspective All titles and abstracts can be accessed here: http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/journal/00063207/188 Feel free to contact me with PDF requests.

  5. . Raising your chicks as an ornithologist. Led by Kim Sullivan. This interactive, lunchtime workshop is for experienced and new parents as well as those considering parenthood. Ornithologists produce few children compared to other academic disciplines. Many ornithologists cite the difficulties of combining field work with family formation. This workshop will allow participants to share information on what works in combining their professional life with parenting. We will discuss what to say when applying for jobs, negotiating parental leave, child care strategies and resources, field work s
  6. Sorry to bogart the forum, but I wanted to make another plug for a workshop at AOU/COS 2015. Jeff Buler is leading an all-star cast* in a RADAR ORNITHOLOGY workshop. There is a 20+ year archive of Nexrad radar data just sitting there at the National Severe Storms Lab. This archive could be a tremendous resource for examining regional- to continental-scale phenomena relating to birds aloft. There are about 10 people in the country who have the knowhow to use these data to their fullest, and more than half of them are going to be in the same room to share their methods with the rest of the o
  7. I am pleased to announce a free instructional workshop on geolocator analysis that will be held in association with the 2015 joint meeting of the American Ornithologists Union and the Cooper Ornithological Society in Norman Oklahoma (http://aoucos2015.ou.edu). The two-day workshop entitled, "Light-level geolocation with open source tools," will convene on the morning of 27 July, 2015 and will end the following Tuesday at about 5pm. Thanks to the support of the Cooper Ornithological Society, there is no enrollment fee for this workshop. The workshop will be led by Nat Seavy of Point Blue Conse
