BOS Membership: Join Us!

Anyone with an interest in wild birds and associated scientific and social activities is encouraged to attend Buffalo Ornithological Society meetings or field trips and to apply for membership.

Upon joining the BOS, members receive the following benefits:

  • A local birding checklist of birds in the BOS area
  • The BOS Verification Date Guide
  • A subscription to the Society's monthly publication, The Prothonotary

    Check out a past issue of The Prothonotary:   Prothonotary: October, 2022

  • The option to subscribe to our automated telephone Rare Bird "One Call Hotline" to receive immediate notification of rare birds that have been sighted in the BOS study area
  • The option to create an online user account to the BOS website to access member-only online resources and media

There is one thing we ask our members in return: participation in our BOS counts!
