Hancock here: wow -- Vancouver is going into birding history next year. THe International Ornithological Congress is holding its meeting here and it is expected that 2000 bird biologists and 30,000 people from the public will attend. Hancock Wildlife Foundation will be involved in many ways. First, we are sponsoring Dr. David Birds daily news letter -- printed and e-version of the days highlights. We met with them yesterday and they are going to support our proposal (led by Myles) of Surrey-Delta being declared the "Raptor Capital of Canada" (maybe "Birds of Prey Capital of Canada"!!! -- so we are not confused with the dinosaur aficionados!) -- the hopefully road signs proclaiming this. We will probably be listed, along with Fraser River Safari Tours, as hosting a number of birding tours through the fall season -- in our case to eagle nests and concentrations. A downer is that during the August 6 day event all the eagles will be in the north.

In any case you will hear more about this as we get closer. If any of you see other references to this IOC meeting please post here.
