Transcript 7 VOLUME 43, No. 1 January, 1994 The Spoonbill Published by The Ornithology Group, Outdoor Nature Club, Houston SAVE "AMERICAN BIRDS?" I have heard from various -sources that National Audubon will discontinue publication of "American Birds" (AB) magazine in the immediate future. Rumor has it they are losing money on this publication and will no longer subsidize the magazine. Unfortunately, AB does not attract numerous -subscribers as do "Birder'-s World," "Birdwatcher'* Digest" and "Wildbird." AB reports the movement and occurrence of birds throughout North America on a -seasonal basis. Four times a year, a few thousand birders dedicated to reporting and documenting birds and trends in bird movements-send in their reports to AB. No other birding publication accomplishes this feat. Texas, for example, has two Regional Editors and-six Subregional Editors to which all bird reports are -sent. Each Subregional Editor compiles a -seasonal report and -submits it to the two Regional Editors, who-synthesize the-six reports into one report for the entire -state. This process ensures a good record of bird distribution and movement throughout all-states, not just Texas. In my opinion this information is far more important than Christmas Count data and it would be tragic to lose -such a valuable pool of information. I began birding in 1987 and first subscribed to AB in 1989. I continue as a-subscriber today. At first I would just read the interesting articles and the -section on Texas briefly. Now I glance at information from most-states, -study all articles and read the Texas report at least three times before my next edition arrives. Unlike other publications like "Birder'-s World," "Birdwatcher'-s Digest" and "Wildbird," which contain nice pictures, easy- to-read articles and numerous advertisements, AB focuses on documenting bird distribution at the-seasonal level and contains recent discovery articles by leading ornithologists. Don't get me wrong, I also -subscribe to these fun and easy-to-read magazines. However, I also recognize the importance of AB and its continued publication—in -some form. You may be able to help. If enough people express their concerns and feelings to National Audubon about the -significance of American Birds to the birding community and the -scientific realm, the powers that be may change their minds. Perhaps National Audubon can reduce the-size of AB, limit the number of black and white photos used for documentation, eliminate the list of all the people -sending in bird reports, and charge a little more money for their magazine and -still be able to produce a meaningful document. Address your ideas and concerns to: Mr. Peter Berle, President, National Audubon, 700 Broadway, New York, NY 10003; Ms. Susan Drennan, Editor American Birds, 700 Broadway, New York, NY 10003; and to the incoming Chairman of the Board, Mr. Sam Plum, 120 East End Avenue, New York, NY 20028.
