The Association of Field Ornithologists (AFO) is an American ornithological society, with a strong focus on field studies and banding, priding itself as serving as a bridge between professional and amateur ornithologists. It was founded in 1922 as the New England Bird Banding Association, then becoming the Northeastern Bird-Banding Association, before expanding its geographical scope and acquiring its current name. It publishes a twice-yearly newsletter, AFO Afield, as well as the quarterly Journal of Field Ornithology. The AFO is a member of the Ornithological Council.
Officially named The Pamela and Alexander F. Skutch Research Award, the Skutch Award of up to $10,000 USD is presented annually. Applications may be made in English, Spanish or Portuguese by 15 July for the following year. Preference is given to those who propose field research from a neotropical base. 
The Skutch Award is named for Alexander Skutch.
The Bergstrom Research Award is presented annually in honor of E. Alexander Bergstrom.
