Meet the Ornithologists

Two thousand ornithologists converged for the 2016 North American Ornithological Conference on August 16-20 in Washington, DC.

American Ornithology did a series of pictorial interviews (“biosketches”) with people at the conference. Click on any photo to meet the ornithologists!

We hope you’re going to the North American Ornithological Conference, held August 16-20 in Washington, D.C. We also hope you’ll introduce yourself to Abby McBride, who would love to draw a quick whiteboard sketch depicting you and your work. We’ll take a photo or a video of you holding your #biosketch and share it on social media to introduce you to the American Ornithology community.

Don’t forget to follow us on Twitter and use the hashtag #NAOC2016 during the conference. See you soon!
