From the Bird Watcher's Digest guidelines:

BWD is always looking for well-written accounts covering backyard birds, including feeding, housing, bird gardening, how-to projects, and interesting bird behavior and experiences.

We also publish general feature articles covering a wide array of topics of interest to today’s bird watcher. Articles that touch on a unique/unusual topic, humorous articles, and authoritative advice-type articles often find a place among our pages.
