Marietta, Ohio (PRWEB) August 21, 2008
This September, Bird Watcher's Digest will begin celebrating its 30th anniversary year. The magazine will commemorate this milestone by launching several exciting new promotions, Web site features, and more--plus, each issue of Bird Watcher's Digest during the year will include special 30th anniversary content.
Over the past three decades, bird watching has grown in popularity, with about 50 million United States residents taking part in this hobby. Meanwhile the bird-watching and bird-feeding industries have soared to more than $14 billion in annual sales. To keep pace, Bird Watcher's Digest has grown and evolved as well, keeping readers abreast of the changes, innovations, trends, and products that have shaped the world of bird watching.
Bird Watcher's Digest was founded in Marietta, Ohio, in 1978 in Bill and Elsa Thompson's family room. It has grown to include a loyal audience that spans North America and beyond, and to spur the growth of specialty bird stores, birding festivals, and an increasing number of birding trails from coast to coast.
After three decades, the company remains family owned and operated; BWD is the only major birding magazine published by bird watchers for bird watchers. According to BWD Publisher Andy Thompson, "We owe our success to our readers and customers; they've been loyal, enthusiastic, and highly encouraging all these years. We're happy--and also honored--that they continue to invite us into their lives."
In addition to the bi-monthly magazine, Bird Watcher's Digest also publishes the bi-monthly Backyard Bird Newsletter, more than 15 best-selling backyard booklets, a monthly e-newsletter, and an active and dynamic Web site packed with unique, interactive content.
