    De Nederlandse Ornithologische Unie (NOU) is een vereniging voor amateur en professionele vogelonderzoekers en stelt zich tot doel de interactie en kennisoverdracht tussen beide groepen te bevorderen. De vereniging staat open voor alle vogelliefhebbers, maar richt zich in het bijzonder op mensen die meer willen weten over de verspreiding, ecologie en gedrag van vogels.


    De NOU en haar werkgroepen organiseren verschillende activiteiten, waaronder excursies en studiedagen. Daarnaast brengt de NOU het wetenschappelijke tijdschrift Ardea uit en in samenwerking met Sovon het blad Limosa. Beide tijdschriften zijn (voor leden volledig) digitaal toegankelijk.
