The 90th Annual Meeting of the Nebraska Ornithologists' Union took place in Grand Island, Nebraska, on May 17 to 19, 1991. Activities, hosted by the Grand Island Audubon Society, centered around the Holiday Inn in Grand Island where programs, meetings, and the annual banquet were held.

Friday night of the meeting the usual slide show took place, followed by a showing of the Nebraska PBS program Last of the Rainwater Basins, which featured NOU members Lee Morris and Paul Johnsgard. Saturday's highlight was the banquet speaker Toby Lemburg, who presented a paper on the game bird operations run by his family. Toby, 13 years old, showed slides of the birds, equipment, and operations of his father's and grandfather's farms. Tours of the farms were conducted as part of the weekend's activities, which were held under overcast and misty conditions.
