    This award, formerly given by COS, was sponsored by Dr. Robert W. Storer and is intended to encourage the formulation of new ideas that could change the course of thinking about the biology of birds. It is given to the author(s) of scientific research articles, short communications, or commentaries (e.g., editorials, reviews) that offer unconventional ideas or innovative approaches, backed by a well-reasoned argument.
    The Katma Award is given only when it is merited, no more than once a year. The award consists of approximately $2500 plus a certificate, and is given at the annual meeting. Katma funds also may be used for activities that are consistent with the award, such as plenary lectures, symposia, and support of publication. A full explanation of the Katma Award was published in 2003, Volume 105(4):843 of The Condor.
