This article is from the Birds FAQ, by Lanny Chambers with numerous contributions by others.

2.4. What are good wild-bird magazines?

That depends on your purpose. Bird magazines have three main
offerings: interesting articles, compelling photography, and records
of unusual sightings. Many publications have strengths in only one
area.

Below is a list of many magazines, with their organizations. Bernard
Volet supplied much of the European information. Also, see the next
section, as its subject matter overlaps this one's.
