Join VSO

Thank you for joining the Virginia Society of Ornithology!

VSO members are united by the love of birds, and together we work to advance conservation efforts and the enjoyment of birds in Virginia. Members receive VSO publications and are invited to participate in our many birding events and trips throughout the year.

New and renewing VSO members are eligible for 15% discount to a Subscription of “Birds of the World” from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. Annual subscription is $49.00 before the discount.

When you receive your membership confirmation from the VSO, you'll receive the coupon code to get your discount when you subscribe and check out on the "Birds of the World" web site.

Learn more and subscribe here:

Per Cornell: “Birds of the World is the most comprehensive collection of ornithological life histories on the planet. Not only is it taxonomically complete at 10,824 bird species and 249 families, but it is masterfully woven with multimedia from Macaulay Library; dynamic range maps from eBird (and other sources); and rich with factual content, data, and insights backed by hundreds of thousands of science citations.”

If you are an existing BOW subscriber, Cornell cannot refund your payment. You will have to cancel and then sign up again to use the discount. It would apply at your next renewal cycle (a limitation of Cornell’s software).
