The most recent issue of the Association of Field Ornithologist’s biannual newsletter, AFO Afield is now available for download. In this issue, we provide a summary of the NAOC VI meeting that was held in Washington D.C. in August 2016. In so doing, we present the recipients of the AFO Student Presentation Awards, the Best Student Publication Award, the Bergstrom Research Awards, and the Pamela L. and Alexander F. Skutch Fund Research Award.
We also introduce the two newest elected members of the AFO’s Governing Council (Class of 2019), Rob Aldredge and Ian Ausprey. In preparation for our annual meeting which will occur from the 8th to the 11th of August, 2017 in Puerto Iguazú, Argentina as part of the Ornithological Congress of the Americas, we provide details about the congress program including information about the 7 internationally renowned ornithologists that we will be hosting as plenary speakers. We also include information about the conference location, potential field trips, and birds that may be seen in the surrounding area which includes the world famous Iguazú Falls!
Following on from the August 2016 issue of AFO Afield, we provide the second installment of our article showcasing the research of former recipients of the Pamela L. and Alexander F. Skutch Fund Research Award. In this issue, we learn about the research of Harold Greeney, Noemi Esther Llanos, and Renata Biancalana.
