An electronic index was created to aid in researching birds, natural history and related topics. Some key research words are author’s name, species name, census, survey, and banding. This index includes article titles to facilitate the search through “Find” on the Adobe Acrobat Reader toolbar. If any article title did not include for example a specific name, an identifying feature was added in [parenthesis] following the volume and number.
Please note: some bird species names have changed so to research in the older publications you will need to change your search word.
Audubon membership records, meeting minutes, book reviews, and announcements were not included.

The Jack Pine Warbler began life as the Michigan Audubon Society's Quarterly Newsletter in 1923 before assuming its familiar name in 1927. It became a full-fledged quarterly journal in 1939 (Wiles 1976) and continued as such until 1989.
Following a one –year hiatus, the "JPW" was converted into a newsletter in 1991 (Campbell 1991) and morphed into a magazine format in 2007. Partly in response to the lack of an outlet for scientific articles on the birds of Michigan following the changed format of the JPW, Michigan Birds and Natural History was started in 1994.
