Summer Meetings

Members of the Burns lab participated in a couple professional meetings this summer. Kevin Burns and former Burns lab students Nick Mason and Pascal Title attended the Evolution meetings in Guarujá, Brazil in June. Kevin presented a summary of the lab’s work on tanagers and Nick presented a talk looking at vocal evolution in tanagers and woodcreepers. Both Nick and Kevin, as well as current Burns lab members Erik Funk and Bryan Myers, attended the joint meeting of American Ornithologists’ Union and the Cooper Society in Norman, Oklahoma. Lots of good science at both meetings as well as good birds. Bird highlights of the Brazil meetings included Green-headed Tanager, and bird highlights of the Oklahoma meeting include Black-capped Vireo and Painted Bunting.
