  1. Leaders of the AOU and COS met together at the annual meeting in Norman, Oklahoma to review the progress and success of our partnerships: the joint publication of our journals, joint communications and website (American Ornithology.org), and our joint annual conference. During the leadership meeting, a motion was made for the two societies to pursue a merger. Both societies formally approved moving ahead with this pursuit in the coming year. During the Oklahoma conference, this action was announced at the AOU Fellows meeting and the COS business meeting. Both societies will be seeking input fr
  2. Two new Joint Special Collections of material from The Auk and The Condor are now available on the Central Ornithology Publication Office (COPO) website. The Invasive Species Collection, featuring an Introduction by Robert Pecchia and Auk Editor-in-Chief Mark Hauber, brings together 16 articles each from The Auk and The Condor focused on the theme of assessing invasive species' impact on avian populations. For you bookworms, the Book Reviews Collection contains more than 400 open access book reviews from The Auk and The Condor, from 2000 to the present. A downloadable Excel file makes

  4. 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

  6. 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
  7. . 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. Highlights of the scientific program include plenary presentations by Drs. Ellen Ketterson (Indiana U.), Elizabeth Derryberry (Tulane), and Frank Moore (U of So. Mississippi). There will also be a special seminar by leading science writer David Quammen; author of Ebola, Spillover, and Song of the Dodo among others. Planned symposia include: (1) Advances in studies of birds in urbanized landscape; (2) Ecology and conservation of grassland birds; (3) Recent scientific applications of weather radar for advancing ornithology; (4) Severe weather impacts on birds: Past, present, and future; (5) Nort

  13. http://aoucos2015.ou.edu/?page_id=459 This year, a membership in AOU and/or COS will get you a discounted registration fee for the 2015 conference.

  15. We are in the midst of designing the new AOU/COS website, AmericanOrnithology.org and will need many, many bird photos. If you have any good ones that we could use (we can't pay you but will give photo credit), please post them somewhere electronically (Picasa Flicker, etc) and send me the link. Prefer Western Hemisphere species. Thanks!! Sue Haig President, American Ornithologists' Union
  16.
