      The Ornithological Council will now manage the Ornithology Exchange, a free online community for those involved with and interested in ornithology.

    The Ornithological Council, a consortium of scientific societies, has taken over management of the Ornithology Exchange, the free online community of individuals and organizations involved with and interested in ornithology. The website was founded more than ten years ago by Ellen Paul and Chris Merkord and has been managed by them in a volunteer capacity since then. Both Paul and Merkord have decided to move on to other pursuits in ornithology and in life, and the Ornithological Council is honored to be the OE’s new home.

    Traditionally, the Ornithology Exchange has been supported financially by organizations and societies within the ornithological community, including by members of the Ornithological Council. The OC is grateful for support from the Wilson Ornithological Society, which will help cover the costs of running the Ornithology Exchange in 2023 as we transition the website over to the OC. If other societies would also like to make a voluntary contribution - in any amount - for the Ornithology Exchange in 2023, please contact the OC. Such contributions will be publicly recognized on the Ornithology Exchange. 

    The goal of the Ornithology Exchange is to advance the field of ornithology by facilitating the timely sharing and discussion of information about basic and applied research, teaching, conservation, and the workings of the professional societies devoted to these activities. The OC is excited to continue the Ornithology Exchange’s important work in this arena.
