Welcome to the website for the 2013 Society of Canadian Ornithologists Annual Meeting in Winnipeg, Manitoba! The SCO annual meeting is the premiere annual conference highlighting research in avian ecology and conservation by Canadians. This year, the conference will feature plenaries that will explore the theme, "Should we conserve endangered species or endangered spaces?". While this will be the focus of our plenary presentations, we welcome abstract submissions for oral and poster presentations on any topic related to ornithological research in Canada. Submissions about bird species that occur outside of Canada are also welcome. Proposed oral sessions include but are not restricted to citizen science, conservation biology, behavioural ecology, landscape ecology, reproductive ecology, physiology and landscape genetics. We will also enjoy poster sessions, field trips, reception, banquet, and barbeque. Field trips will bring us to visit Ramsar-recognized wetlands, a globally recognized Important Bird Area, and one of Canada's largest and best quality remnant tall-grass prairies. The University of Manitoba is honoured to be hosting the conference. The chair of the annual meeting is Dr. Nicola Koper, of the Natural Resources Institute, University of Manitoba.
