Index of Articles in Pennsylvania Birds

1987 to present


This is a database of articles published in Pennsylvania Birds since its inception. This list will tell you the Issue and Page on which the article begins. Click on the Issue and it will take you to the Issue in which it is located. Then you must page to the article.

Note: Articles from issues less than two years old are only available to members. The issues can be purchased, however. See PSO Sales.

The Issue number is three digits; the first two are the Volume (01, 12, 22, etc.) and the last digit is the Issue Number (1 through 4). 014 = Volume 1 Number 4; 232 = Volume 23 Number 2, etc.

Although all content in Pennsylvania Birds is copyrighted, you are free to use any of the materials as long as Pennsylvania Birds is cited as the source.

You can search for articles by Title, Author, or Category

Title: The articles are listed alphabetically with "The" and "A" at the end, so "The First Record of Arctic Tern for PA" will be listed as "First Record of Arctic Tern for PA, The"

Author: Authors are listed by Lastname and then Firstname. If there are multiple authors, the article will be listed under each individual name.

Category: The categories are as follows.

General: Articles about general birding, photo quiz, etc.

Site: Site Guides

Personality: Interviews or articles about noted birders in the state.

Annual Reports: Regularly occurring reports such as Christmas Bird Counts, Migration Count, Hawk Watches, etc.

Listing: Articles about Big Days, Big Years, PA Birdlists, etc.

Review: Reviews of books or other birding related equipment.

Species: Articles about one or a few species (as opposed to general multiple family articles). The species are listed alphabetically using the most recent common name. Some old names are used when splits have occurred and the article does not distinguish (such as Trail's Flycatcher). This is only an index to articles about a particular (or a few) species, not the Local Notes, etc, which lists all seasonal sightings. So you cannot find all records for Prothonotary Warbler here.
