  2. Did you know that the Wilson Ornithological Society maintains a guide to graduate programs in Ornithology? http://www.wilsonsociety.org/pubs/studies.html
  3. 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.
  4. 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. Please join us for an exciting and friendly exploration of birds and ornithology in this beautiful setting! Important dates Deadline for abstract submission: 10 April Early bird registration: 10 April Meeting website: http://personalpress.acadiau.ca/ornithmeet2015/
  5. 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)).

Abstract submission will be online only; abstracts will not be accepted by fax or e-mail. If all oral presentation sessions are filled, it may be necessary to accept some abstracts for poster presentations instead of oral presentations.
  11. Our upcoming joint meeting of the AFO, SCO-SOC, and WOS in Nova Scotia (16-19 July 2015) will be special for all sorts of reasons. In addition to the wonderful setting and the immense pleasure of the company - which our societies are known for - we are making efforts to include valuable program elements beyond the plenaries and paper sessions. The Wilson Ornithological Society will be offering a workshop on mentoring best practices and would like to know if you would be interested in attending. It will be held on Thursday afternoon, prior to the opening reception. For some, this may mean scheduling travel to arrive on Wednesday. See travel info below. If you plan to attend, please sign up when you register. The four-hour workshop will include: Basics - What is the purpose of mentoring - How to find a mentor or mentee at all levels from high school to early career - Frequency of meetings - Team mentoring Best practices - Mentor training - Learning effective communication skills - Defining the relationship and expectations - Tracking outcomes - Celebrating successes - How to evaluate the impacts of mentoring - Incorporating feedback and lessons learned The happy side of mentoring - Personal fulfillment for mentor - Enhanced success for mentee - Benefits for department or program - Benefits for ornithology The dark side of mentoring - Time drain - When the relationship is not working out - How to give the mentee an honest evaluation of the mentee's aptitude and skills - Ethical issues and Peer mentoring - Training - Support - Oversight Travel time information By air: Plan to arrive on Wednesday if you can't find a flight that arrives in Halifax early enough in the day on Thursday (including clearing immigration if coming from outside Canada) to drive the 100 km to Wolfville and arrive by noon for the workshop, which will include lunch). By Nova Star ferry from Portland, Maine: If arriving via the Nova Star ferry, you will reach Yarmouth at 8 a.m. Allow 45 minutes to disembark and clear immigrations and customs. From there, it is a three-hour drive to Acadia University. Barring delays, you should be able to just make it by noon. By Bay Ferries (Princess of Acadia) from New Brunswick: If arriving via the Princess of Acadia (shorter ferry from New Brunswick) you will arrive at 9 a.m. As you are departing from a Canadian port, there should be no need to clear Customs after disembarking in Digby. The drive from Digby to Acadia University is about two hours.
