"This comprehensive reference work . . . describes in detail 354 species found in a 353,000 square mile area, from the 40th parallel in Colorado north to the 52nd parallel in Canada; from the western border of Idaho to the eastern boundaries of Montana and Wyoming. . . . Here a visitor to any of the major national parks in the Rocky Mountain region can have quick access to the abundance and seasonality of a given species. In addition, a comprehensive introduction describes the predominant life zones of the region, and over a dozen maps illustrate such significant features as precipitation patterns, vegetation community types, and major physiographic provinces. The book is well written and an essential guide for the birder who visits the Rockies."—Indiana Audubon Quarterly
Birds as common as the bobwhite and blue-winged teal and as rarely seen as the great egret are featured in Paul A. Johnsgard's informative book, profusely illustrated with drawings and color plates.

A foremost ornithologist and natural history writer, Johnsgard is Foundation Professor of Life Sciences at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. He is the author of many books, including Song of the North Wind: A Story of the Snow Goose (1979) and Those of the Gray Wind: The Sandhill Cranes (1986), also published by the University of Nebraska Press.From Library Journal:
The major field guides for identifying birds offer only general data on geographical and seasonal distribution; for specific information serious birders must rely on state and regional studies. Johnsgard has provided a comprehensive and up-to-date guide to the avifauna of a region previously poorly covered, the northern Rockies between the 40th parallel in northern Colorado and the 52d parallel in central Alberta, with a strong focus on national parks. Arranged taxonomically, the 354 species accounts include maps, latilong charts, and brief descriptive texts. Authoritative, clearly written, and easy to use, this guide is essential to anyone who wants to know the region's bird life. Paul B. Cors, Univ. of Wyoming Lib., Laramie
