The seventh North American Ornithological Conference (NAOC VII) is a virtual gathering opportunity for sharing and discussing scientific research in all areas involving birds. This year’s conference theme is “Flight paths addressing global challenges,” and has attracted over 2,800 attendees so far, including professional and amateur ornithologists, students, educators, government officials and policy-makers, researchers, and vendors. Scientific components of the conference will include the most current research on topics ranging from bird behavior to physiology, populations, conservation, and evolution. New research, ideas, and tools will be shared through live oral and poster presentations, tantalizing “lightning talks,” and in-depth discussions in round tables and workshops. Many opportunities will be available to meet new people, catch up with colleagues, and share common interests in ornithology. If you would like to explore the fascinating world of birds, please join us!
