Irish Birds is published annually. Each volume consists of four annual issues.
Irish Birds publishes papers and short notes on all aspects of birds in Ireland, as well as annual reports of Rarities, Scarce Migrants and Rare Breeders (all formerly included in the Irish Bird Report) and the Irish Ringing Report. Papers, notes, photographs and drawings are welcome from amateurs and professionals alike, and should be submitted to the editor before 31 August each year.
Irish Birds volume 1 number 1 was published in 1977. It superseded the Irish Bird Report, which was published annually from 1953 (number 1) to 1975 (number 23). The 24th Irish Bird Report appeared in the first issue of Irish Birds.
