A Call for ABA Award Nominations!

This past November at the Central Valley Bird Symposium in Stockton, California, field guide author and lifetime ABA member Jon L. Dunn received the ABA’s most prestigious award, the Roger Tory Peterson Award for Promoting the Cause of Birding.  Jon has long been a pillar of the California birding community and, as the chair of the ABA Checklist Committee and primary author of the National Geographic Guide to North American Birds, has shared a lifetime of expertise and experience to the betterment of the North American birding community too.

Do you know a birder who deserves recognition from the ABA?  All members in good standing are eligible and are cordially invited to make one or more nominations for the five principal ABA Awards.

You have the choice of making your nomination on-line or downloading and printing a copy of the nomination form and mailing it to the ABA.  In either case, please don’t stint on providing full supporting details that will strengthen your nomination(s). Also, consider asking other birders to submit “seconding” nominations for your nominee

The deadline for receiving nominations is December 31, 2012, so don’t delay – discuss it with friends and birders in your local, State, and Provincial bird club, then go to the linked page on the ABA web site and START NOMINATING!

You can find the details as to the categories of achievement for each award here
