WELCOME to the home page of the Mississippi Ornithological Society (MOS)!
MOS was founded in 1955 to promote a greater appreciation and protection of native birds, to cooperate with other organizations engaged in the observation and study of birds, and to encourage ornithological research.
MOS publishes the MOS Newsletter and The Mississippi Kite, a journal devoted to information about the habits, behavior, and status of birds in Mississippi.
The society holds semiannual meetings around the state to hear speakers on ornithological topics and to enjoy field trips into areas near the meeting site.
To learn more about MOS and its activities, follow the links on the left side of this page. Enjoy!
