The annual meeting of the NY State Ornithological Assoc. and NY Birders Conference will be held Nov. 1-3 in Uniondale, Nassau Co., NY, hosted by the Queens County Bird Club. DOAS is a long-time member organization of NYSOA, whose purpose is to promote and document the ornithology of NY State. The expanded meeting promises to be one of the best in recent years. Among the activities are exciting speakers on birding and bird conservation; field trips with top birders to great local destinations, a banquet dinner featuring a program by James Currie of Birding Adventures TV, photography and digiscoping field workshops, posters and vendor tables including major optics manufacturers, workshops and student papers, great
shopping nearby and an excursion to Manhattan for non-birding guests, as well as NYSOA’s annual business meeting and award presentations, with plenty of time for socializing.
This is a great opportunity to witness the spectacle of the fall coastal migration during this peak time for rarities! For further information on the event, including registration materials, visit http://www.nybirdersconference.org. For information on NYSOA, visit http://www.nybirds.org
