Hi All,

I was asked by Steve Rottenborn to forward this here. Even if you are
not inclined to put together a scientific presentation, I would highly
recommend looking into possibly attending the conference this fall. Some
local birders remember quite well how fabulous the conference held in
Olympia was in August of 2013.

Cheers and good birding,
Brad Waggoner

*Call for Papers for the 41st Annual Conference of Western Field

Abstracts are now being accepted for scientific presentations at the
41st Annual Conference of Western Field Ornithologists, to be held 28
September – 2 October 2016 at the River Lodge Conference Center in
Fortuna, California. Science sessions will be held on 30 September and 1
October (Friday and Saturday).

Oral presentations should reflect original research or summarize
existing unpublished information, and should be presented in a manner
that will interest both serious amateur and professional field

Talks relating to the following themes are solicited:

• Status, distribution, migration, and population dynamics of birds

• Systematics and biogeography of birds

• Ecology, behavior, and evolution of birds

• New information on avian field identification problems

• Science-based conservation and management of birds

• Techniques for field study of birds, including censusing, monitoring,
and other methods; and results of studies applying such techniques

Research described should apply to birds of the WFO region: western
North America (from Alaska through Mexico, and the Great Plains to the
Pacific coast) and the eastern Pacific Ocean. All talks should identify
study objectives, describe methods and data analysis, present results,
discuss the significance of the research, and propose future research

Oral presentations shall be allotted 15 minutes, including 3 minutes for
questions and discussion. In total, we expect to have sufficient time
in the schedule for about 22 presentations.

An abstract of your presentation should be submitted electronically to
me at srottenborn at harveyecology.com
<mailto:srottenborn at harveyecology.com> (srottenborn at
harveyecology.com) no later than 30 June 2016. Please contact me for
the specific format of the abstract (which I can email to you), or with
any questions.

For more information about the conference, please visit the WFO website

you in Fortuna!
