The ABA’s “Field Ornithology” posts allow for quick dissemination of ornithological news. They are meant to complement North American Birds, which is the longstanding “journal of ornithological record” for birders across North America, from Alaska to Panama and the West Indies. The journal’s mission has been to provide an overview of the changing panorama of the continent’s birdlife—that is, avian status and distribution. More recently, the journal’s scope has expanded to include taxonomy, identification, and behavioral issues, making North American Birds a more holistic journal of North American field ornithology. If you have a topic of interest for possible inclusion as a web-post or as an article in North American Birds, please contact Editor Michael Retter.
