Free issue of North American Birds

Mike Burrell also posted this on his blog, but since I received an email about it this morning along with some encouragement to spread the news among my birding circles, I thought I would post it here.

North American Birds, the excellent journal that is published four times a year, is offering up a free online version of their last issue. The journal is now going digital after many years of only being available in hard copies to members.

Anyways, download the spring issue here!!

Of interest in this journal is the spring of 2012 birding summary for Ontario, written by Alan Wormington.
I am currently working on last winter's report to be published soon. If you have any significant bird sightings between the period of December 1, 2012 and February 28, 2013, please send them to me. I should note that if your sighting(s) have been posted to Ontbirds or Ebird, I will have already heard about them.


Update from Scotland: I have been here for a few days, and we have been graced with typical Scottish weather. Temperatures ranging between 1 and 5 degrees Celcius, almost constant strong east winds, and heavy overcast most days. Yesterday happened to be sunny (though it was also cool and windy) and I made it out for a few hours while Laura wrote her last exam. I will make a post about that soon enough, but in the meantime here is a photo of a  Common Buzzard hovering in the strong winds at the top of Arthur's Seat in Edinburgh.

Be sure to also read the "Changing Seasons" section written by NAB Editor Ned Brinkley, which starts on page 60. Fabulous reading, and some fabulous photos too (including three from Ontario).
