Many papers describing urban bird studies are published in journals that require authors to emphasize the practical implications of their work for practitioners. I analyzed a decade of papers to assess guidelines and recommendations they presented for the target audiences. The majority of the studies seemed to be designed to meet the needs of practitioners. Less than 20% of the papers cited planning documents and only 6% indicated that practitioners had been consulted during the study. I found that 88% of the papers offering recommendations included at least some advice on features not examined in the study. Although some authors take great care in designing their studies to meet the needs of practitioners, there is much room for improvement.
