In 1982 the magazine The Living Bird Quarterly replaced the The Living Bird. Volume numbering began anew in summer 1982. The magazine was published quarterly through volume 10 number 3 (summer 1991). Starting with volume 10 number 4 (autumn 1991), the magazine adopted the name Living Bird. According to their website, the original annual The Living Bird may appear irregularly in the future.


The current magazine includes semi-popular articles on bird biology, behavior, conservation, art, and research, etc.


An occasional supplement called Winter bird highlights is published.


Publisher's Description: Living Bird, the Lab's award-winning magazine, features stunning full-color images by the world's top wildlife photographers. In-depth articles include travel adventures, product reviews, and stories about bird conservation, science, art, and photography.
