We had a great time in Marietta!
As a way to say thank you to our longtime fans and subscribers, we brought our popular Reader Rendezvous series home to Marietta, Ohio! The BWD Homecoming blended southern Ohio birding with personal tours of the places associated with the early days of the magazine: the home of founding publisher Elsa Thompson, the original 1978 office of Bird Watcher’s Digest; our current home offices on Acme Street; the local hotspots that got the Thompsons started as birders; and more!

If you missed the Rendezvous, or if you want to recapture the spirit of those fun-filled days, you’ll want to check out pictures taken by the BWD staff and attendees.
