We aim to continue the fine work of previous conferences in making this the premier event for the communication of new research findings about birds in New Zealand, and for providing opportunities for discussion, networking and field trips for professional and amateur ornithologists, students and others who are interested in birds and their habitats.

We will be presenting several keynote lectures and shorter talks on a wide range of topics, and look forward to bringing together researchers and all who are interested to share their knowledge and findings to make this conference a dynamic, informative and memorable event.

We look forward to hosting you in Thames for a fantastic weekend of birds and birding!

SCIENTIFIC PRESENTATIONS
Oral presentations will be spread across the first two days of the conference, and can cover any aspects of ornithology. Detailed instruction for submitting abstracts can be found in the Call for Abstracts. Expressions of interest from members or non-members who wish to present a paper or a poster are welcomed. Abstracts of talks and posters should be submitted to the conference organiser conference@birdsnz.org.nz not later than 28 February 2021.
