National Geographic's Collectors Corner

Collaborative site for collectors, dealers, & anyone interested in our history.

Recently brought to my attention by fellow 'Corner member Jeff Persons, there was a short-lived Birder's journal published by the Society. It began in Nov/Dec 2001, and the last known issue was Jan/Feb 2003, with a possibly Mar/April 2003 issue published, but if so it was the last.

Jeff has provided me with a scan of all 8 issues. He was a subscriber to Bird Watcher, but then abruptly received notice that it would cease publication and he received a refund. 

This "magazine" is billed as a newsletter, and was 15-18 pages per each bi-monthly issue. As of now, I see none listed as available on eBay. I simply had no knowledge of this title, and find it odd that it was never announced in NGM back in 2001.
