  1. The latest issue of the Association of Field Ornithologist’s biannual newsletter, AFO Afield is now available for download. In preparation for our annual meeting which will occur from the 16th to the 20th August in Washington DC as part of the NAOC VI, we have included information about the AFO’s presence at the meeting and how you can interact with us. This includes details about Twitter-based competitions that we will run throughout the conference for a chance to win a stylish AFO baseball cap! We are also excited to include a contribution from former recipients of the Bergstrom Award about their research focusing on the ecology of Patagonia’s migratory birds which was funded through the award. In addition, we have included interviews with three former recipients of the Pamela L. and Alexander F. Skutch Research Award, Sandra Victoria Rojas Nossa, Ursula Valdez, and Gustavo Londoño. The interviews showcase the research funded through the award, the impact of the research, stories from the field, and provide updates about the recipients. Finally, we introduce the three newest elected members of the AFO’s Governing Council (Class of 2018), Jill Jankowski, Matthew Reudink, and Jennifer Smith.

  2. If you have obtained Global Entry status and you are DRIVING into Canada, you will need your Global Entry card if you want to take advantage of the expedited immigration lines for Global Entry Travelers. It is not clear if this includes travelers taking their cars onto the car ferries but it probably does, so be sure to have your Global Entry card with you. Anyone traveling from the U.S. to Canada by air or vehicle must have a valid passport. The old days when you could drive to Canada with no more than your U.S. driver's license are long gone. Plus of course you need the passport to get back into the U.S.
  3. The Association of Field Ornithologists, the Society of Canadian Ornithologists / Société des ornithologistes du Canada, and the Wilson Ornithological Society will hold their joint annual meetings at Acadia University in Wolfville, Nova Scotia, Canada, from 15 – 19 July 2015.

  4. Bay Ferries has announced the schedule for the ferry running between St. John, New Brunswick, and Digby, Nova Scotia. This is a crossing of ~ 2.5 hours, with a lead of ~ 1 hour required before boarding (but no customs delay on the Nova Scotia side). This new boat will make 2 NB-to-NS crossings a day (0800h - 1030h, and 1430h - 1700h). From Digby, the drive to Wolfville—traversing the length of the beautiful Annapolis Valley—takes ~ 2 hours. Anyone taking this route may want to consider using the evening crossing and then staying in the many Bed-and-breakfast options in Digby, historic Annapolis Royal, or other towns along the way. Return trips will depart from Digby at 1115h and 1730h. Conference attendees wishing to participate in the Brier Island pelagic trip on 19 July will probably have time to catch the 1730h departure on the same day if you plan on leaving Brier immediately after the pelagic cruise (the drive from Brier to Digby takes ~ 2 hours, including 2 short auto ferry crossing (no reservations for those needed)).
