    This SFO Vision Statement represents the initial efforts to plan the Society for Ornithology. The document was prepared over the past year by senior ornithologists from across North America. It will now be used by a new committee comprised of 4 representatives from each of the ornithological societies in the Americas interested in helping further plan SFO. For more information, see the article about it.



  3. Regarding the proposed Society of Ornithology and the merger of the Ornithological Societies of North America

    In a few days, the governing Council of the American Ornithologists’ Union (AOU) and invited guests will meet to discuss a plan for the implementation of the AOU plan for a Society of Ornithology. In part, the plan addresses a proposal to merge the Ornithological Societies of North America. This same issue was raised and addressed by the Cooper Ornithological Society (COS) beginning in 2009. Several individuals have suggested that not everyone in the AOU group may have seen the documents associated with the COS effort and that making them available would be useful to their deliberations. In the following pages, I provide a brief overview of the COS effort as well as copies of pertinent documents.
