Burns Lab at 2017 AOS

The Burns lab was well represented at the recent American Ornithological Society meetings, which were held this year at Michigan State University this year. Five past and present Burns lab members were in attendance. Erik received an AOS travel award to present his talk on conservation indices of tanagers. Brian also received a travel award to present his hummingbird hybrid zone results. We were joined by Amelia who has been working in Scott Edward’s lab at Harvard this summer. She presented some of her MS thesis results on tanager morphological evolution. We were also able to reconnect with former Burns lab student Nick Mason who presented results partly based on his MS thesis data. Nick won a student presentation award for his talk. There was lots of good science at the meeting — and we also managed to get great looks at the endangered Kirtland’s Warbler!
