Feature articles

One of the strengths of Bird Table is the range and quality of articles that it features. Most articles are solicited from potential authors by the editor but unsolicited articles may sometimes be published. If you have an idea for an article that you feel would suit Bird Table and its readership, please contact the editor to discuss your idea. Please note, no fees are paid for articles used in the magazine.

Short notes

Short notes on garden bird behaviour are welcome, especially from those participating in Garden BirdWatch.


Bird Table features photographs from a range of sources, with most of the images used coming from the BTO's Digital Image Library. This library contains images generously donated to the BTO for use in its publications and we are extremely grateful to the large number of photographers who have contributed to this wonderful resource.

Other images used in the magazine are sent in by participants in Garden BirdWatch or by others with an interest in garden birds. If you have an image that you think might be of interest to our readers then please contact the editor. Although high resolution images (as close to the original on-camera file size as possible) are needed for the magazine, you can send a low resolution version for consideration.
