NYSOA 69th Annual Meeting
and New State York Birders Conference
Hosted by Chemung Valley Audubon Society
Elmira, NY - September 9-11, 2016

- Friday afternoon field trip and evening program with John James Audubon
- Friday evening reception & workshops
- Saturday evening banquet featuring a program by Dr. Rob Bierregaard, research associate of the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University. His presentation will be “Tracking Ospreys in the Age of Silicon: Migration, Ecology, and Conservation.”
Dr. Bierregaard's studies—the first to collect a significant body of data on juvenile migration—have led to surprising discoveries about the dispersal and migration of naïve Ospreys as they leave their natal territories and explore the world around them.

- Paper presentations.
- NYSOA award presentations.
