The Ornithology Exchange (OE) is an online community of individuals and organizations interested in ornithology. Their mission is to advance the field of ornithology by facilitating the timely sharing and discussion of information about basic and applied research, teaching, conservation, and the workings of the professional societies devoted to these activities. The OE maintains a lengthy list of funding opportunities related to birds. While many of these are research focused, they also list dozens of funding sources that are relevant to land trusts and targeted at regional, state, and local scales.
