Living Bird has been the flagship publication of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology since 1962. For twenty years it was an annual scientific journal, before evolving into a popular quarterly magazine that aims to educate the public about bird conservation and science. Since 2008, new issues have been produced online as well as in print, but older issues 1962-2007 form a 121-issue, 9,000-page collection that is now being digitally preserved for the first time. It will be made freely available online through the Biodiversity Heritage Library and the Internet Archive.
