From the Birds & Blooms guidelines:

We are open to queries and manuscript submissions from professional bird, garden and nature writers, especially submissions that include photos. Here are a few areas open to professionals:

  • Gardening and Birding Features: Stories should be under 1,000 words, including sidebars. We prefer personal experience combined with advice, not a piece with all expert quotes. In addition, we will consider stories about attracting birds, gardening for wildlife, garden trends and birder or gardener profiles.
  • Travel: Stories should focus on nature travel, including birding hotspots.
  • DIY: Projects need to be fresh and innovative. We’re not going to run plans for a bluebird house or stepping stones unless there’s something unique to the approach. Projects should include a supplies list and step-by-step instructions.
