You won’t want to miss the New York State Ornithological Association’s annual meeting and birders conference, October 5-7, 2018, at the RIT Inn and Conference Center, 5257 West Henrietta Road, in Henrietta. Burroughs Audubon Nature Club and the Rochester Birding Association are the meeting’s co-sponsors.
It’s a great opportunity to meet birders from across the state - forming and renewing friendships and learning about the many clubs in our state that are devoted to nature study and conservation. There will be many field trips: Friday afternoon plus Saturday and Sunday mornings. Friday evening’s activities are workshops on Snowy Owls and eBird and a buffet dinner. Saturday features an afternoon paper session, where you can hear about the latest research in ornithology, and a second buffet dinner followed by the keynote address by Greg Miller, a birding tour guide, whose “Big Year” of birding was featured in a book and subsequent movie.
To learn more about the meeting and for registration forms, go to the NYSOA web site, www.nybirds.org <http://www.nybirds.org/> or to the Rochester Birding Association website https://rochesterbirding.com/nysoa-reg/ <https://rochesterbirding.com/nysoa-reg/> , where you can register online or download paper registration forms.
