"Birding World" is a monthly birding journal published in the United Kingdom. It is the magazine of the Bird Information Service, based at Cley next the Sea, Norfolk.

Originally published in 1987 as "Twitching" volume 1, the magazine underwent a name-change, to its present name, at the end of that year (also resetting its volume count back to 1). The editor is Steve Gantlett and the assistant editor Richard Millington.

It is aimed at birders with an interest in the occurrence and identification of rare birds in the United Kingdom and the Western Palearctic. It also covers birding-related material from around the globe.

The range of material published includes:
* papers on bird identification, often including proposed new identification characters for difficult grous of taxa
* news articles on rare birds in Britain and elsewhere in the Western Palearctic

Significant articles published include:
* A three-part series by Krister Mild on the identification of Western Palearctic black-and-white flycatchers
* A number of papers on the Feas's/Zino's Petrel group
* An identification paper on Booted, Sykes', Western Olivaceous and Eastern Olivaceous Warblers

In 2004, its circulation was estimated at 4000 copies. [Wallace, D. I. M. (2004) "Beguiled by Birds" ISBN 0-7136-6535-1 page 138]
