2023 Ohio Avian Research Conference

We are happy to announce that the Ohio Avian Research Conference will be returning this year on Saturday, October 14th, 2023. The full-day event will be hosted by the Grange Insurance Audubon Center, in Columbus, OH, and will include an optional field trip, a full day of scientific presentations, and a keynote presentation by Dr. Nathan W. Cooper, Research Ecologist with the Migratory Bird Center at Smithsonian’s National Zoo and Conservation Biology Institute.

Dr. Cooper will present his research on North America’s rarest songbird, the Kirtland’s Warbler. Over the past few decades, Kirtland’s Warblers have undergone a remarkable recovery, from just 167 males in the world in 1987 to more than 2,200 males today. In addition to having a compelling conservation story, its small population size and restricted breeding and winter ranges provide a truly unique opportunity to learn more about the fascinating and interconnected annual cycles of songbirds. Cooper will take us on a journey through the annual cycle of the Kirtland’s Warbler and share what we have learned from this rare species.

Important Dates:

  • September 9: Deadline for abstracts submissions for oral and poster presentations. Submit your abstract online HERE.
  • October 1: Registration deadline. Register online HERE.

We’ll hope you’ll join us for this full day of discussion and networking on the latest avian research and conservation work in Ohio.
