The Washington Ornithological Society (WOS) publishes a scholarly periodic
journal, Washington Birds, sent upon publication to all WOS members. The
purpose of Washington Birds is to provide information on the birds of
Washington state and the Pacific Northwest. Volume 12 of the journal is now
ready for publication.
Volume 12 of Washington Birds packs a lot of information about birds and
birding in Washington State in 167 pages. Three general interest articles
lead, followed by 18 species accounts of bird species new to the Washington
State list since 2005, when the latest Birds of Washington State by Wahl et
al. came out. The journal concludes with two Washington Bird Records
Committee (WBRC) reports (previously printed in Western Birds) to complete
the run of WBRC publications in WOS' journal. Nearly all the articles
feature authors who are WOS members and come from every corner of the State.
WOS was chartered in 1988 to increase knowledge of the birds of Washington
and to enhance communication among all persons interested in those birds.
Washington Birds, from the earliest days 30 years ago, formed a significant
part of WOS' strategy to encourage the spread of knowledge and discussion of
scientific data about birds in the state. WOS published Volume 1 in 1989
and an additional five volumes in its first decade. Four volumes came out
in the second decade and one in the third. In this 30th anniversary year of
WOS, the board hopes Volume 12 will represent the return to an almost
biennial schedule for publication.
Volume 12 of Washington Birds will be available on-line at the WOS website
at http://wos.org/publications/wa-birds/ on November 1. For cost reasons,
the journal is now available free only on-line. If enough persons express
interest in a hard copy, a short run will be printed and sold at a price to
be determined by the amount of orders. Email the editor at wabirds at wos.org
