The Cooper Ornithological Society (COS)

COS commemorates an early western naturalist, Dr. James G. Cooper. Grounded in natural history and the application of sound science to our understanding of avian biology, the COS has grown from a small band of naturalists in 1893 to the internationally recognized scientific society it is today. Since its inception, the COS has worked to disseminate ornithological knowledge, mentor young professionals, and promote the conservation of birds and wildlife in general.
