7 October 2017 | Birder's Guide to Listing & Taxonomy nest-box occupancy by five species of oak woodland birds" and "Stopover biology of Ruby-throated Hummingbirds during autumn migration". The first issue of The Condor in 1899, then named Bulletin of the Cooper Ornitho- logical Society of California, did proclaim that "The Bulletin stands for bird protec- tion, and will strenuously oppose wan- ton slaughter at all times regardless of its source." That tradition continues today, embod- ied in recent research papers in The Con- dor: Ornithological Applications. These in- clude extensive studies examining threats to birds as diverse as Greater Sage-Grouse, Spectacled Eider, Snowy Plover, Alaska's shorebirds in general, Smith's Longspur, and many other troubled species. Such subjects can enrich birders' un- derstanding of what is needed for protec- tion of birds. President Beissinger tells birders, "The first meeting of the AOS was held in August of this this year. Please come join us in future years!"
