> Dear Jersey Birders,
> An excellent birding event is coming up in a few months. It's the *New York
> Birders Conference/ NYSOA 66th Annual Meeting*, *November 1-3, 2013* in
> Uniondale, NY (western Nassau county). The conference is being hosted by
> the Queens County Bird Club. This is the first time the New York State
> Ornithological Association is meeting in downstate New York in decades, and
> to celebrate, *we've expanded the meeting to include presentations on
> birding, conservation, and current research*. There will also be* field
> trips* to Queens and Long Island birding hotspots, areas that have gotten
> some pretty good fall rarities.
> You can read details on our web site: New York Birders
> You do not need to be a NYSOA member to attend; all birders are welcome.
> Here is just a little more to wet your appetite:
> Our speakers include Dr. Kimberly Bostwick of Cornell University on
> conservation; Dr. Mark Hauber, Hunter College, CUNY and new editor-in-chief
> of *The Auk*, on how *Do Avian Hosts Recognize Brood Parasites?* (believe
> it or not, Mark is a very funny speaker); Tom Stephenson & Scott Whittle on
> *Often Overlooked ID Point to Identify Confusing Warblers*; and Doug
> Gochfeld on *Growth of the New York State Bird List: Predictions vs.
> Outcomes and Thoughts for the Future*. James Currie of Birding Adventures
> TV will talk about *Not Your Grandmother's Audubon* at the Saturday evening
> banquet. There will also be a digiscoping workshop with Clay Taylor and a
> nature photography workshop with Lloyd Spitalnik. And, of course,
> socializing at the end of the day with other birders.
> Many of these speakers appear at major birding festivals around the
> country. Why go to Texas or Ohio when you can get good speakers and good
> birding not very far away? (Uniondale is right across the NYC border.) Is
> there a better way to spend a fall migration weekend? If you are intrigued,
> you can register on the website <http://nybirdersconference.org>.
> Good Birding,
