About the Collection

The Passenger Pigeon is the official scholarly publication of the Wisconsin Society for Ornithology, an organization of both professional and non-professional ornithologists dedicated to the study of Wisconsin birds. First published in 1939, the quarterly journal features a wide range of original information about Wisconsin birds and their habitats, including seasonal field reports, results from annual Christmas bird counts, descriptions of May and Big Day counts, and scientific research articles. Contributions include reports from birders throughout the state on ununsual and interesting sightings and historical accounts from and about prominent Wisconsin naturalists. Editorial comments from officers in the Wisconsin Society for Ornithology are provided regularly.
