“The voices of birds exhibit extraordinary complexity and diversity, unrivalled in the rest of the animal kingdom. AOS fosters research on that complexity and diversity by supporting journals, meetings, grants, and awards. I am a proud member of AOS and proud of the important role that the society plays in research on the avian voice and all other components of ornithology.”
