Bird Observer is a New England-based bimonthly journal for birders. We are a private nonprofit corporation supported by subscribers, and staffed by volunteers. We publish original articles on birding locations, on avian populations and natural history, on regional rarities, book reviews and field notes, bird sightings for Massachusetts, photographs, and artwork. For information on previous issues, check our index or search the Tables of Contents. New for 2015 we're bringing the issues online in an enhanced version - included with the print subscription. Be sure to check out the latest issue!
