Birding Online: May/June 2013 issue

We at Birding are quickly wrapping up production of the May/June 2013 issue, and we hope to have it in the mail to you shortly.

There’s one item, though, that we’d like to get in your hands immediately, and that’s Amy Davis’s “Sightings” column, with details on recent ABA Area records of a Fieldfare in Massachusetts, a Spotted Redshank in Indiana, and more. The complete article is available right now to all current ABA members.

 There’s more! Within a week, we’ll be posting the next installment of “Sightings,” with such incredible rarities as a Bahama Woodstar in Pennsylvania and a Eurasian Whimbrel in Texas. We’ll let you know just as soon as that content is available online.

Another great online feature in the May/June 2013 issue is a compendium of original research articles, compiled by ABA Checklist Committee Chairman Bill Pranty, to accompany a feature article on the fascinating story of the Purple Swamphen in the ABA Area. We expect to have that up soon, too, and we’ll let you know as soon as the content is available.
