Vol 29 (2019)
The cover of Ornis Svecica, volume 29, 2019, features an Ortolan Bunting photographed by Ivan Sjögren.

Volume 29 marks the first online-only access of Ornis Svecica, and a new website within the Open Journal Systems. The cover (available under the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License) features a singing Ortolan Bunting Emberiza hortulana, photographed by Ivan Sjögren ©. Ortolan Buntings have declined in Northern Europe, presumably largely due to intensified agricultural practices, and in this volume of Ornis Svecica, Sondell et al. (2019) report on foraging prerequisites of the species, and put forward recommendations for creating suitable breeding and foraging areas in the agricultural landscape.
