Synopsis: Ever since the Lewis and Clark Expedition spotted its first wild turkey in Kansas, the state has celebrated a rich ornithological history—especially in light of its habitat diversity and its location within the Central Migratory Flyway. That birding bounty is now given its due by a respected team of authors, all recognized avian authorities, in a beautifully produced large-format volume highlighted with professional-quality color photographs and maps.

The first such survey in twenty years, this remarkable book depicts every one of the state's now-documented 473 species. Designed for all knowledgeable birders and professional ornithologists, it provides scientifically accurate information on distribution, breeding, and behavior for each species. It not only significantly updates the previous two-volume field guide Birds in Kansas but also reflects a more than 10% increase in known species-47 more than previously listed, including the Long-billed Murrelet, Ross's Gull, and Broad-billed Hummingbird.

The contents are arranged by family-from abundant groups like Plovers and Sandpipers to the lone Frigate Bird (Fregata magnificens) recorded in the state. For each species, a map shows the counties in which it has been reported, and many species include maps for both breeding and banding. Use of color in the distribution maps allows depiction of seasonal bird distribution. The text also includes a brief life history for most regularly breeding species, as well as information on migratory routes explaining where the birds travel when they leave Kansas.

Birds of Kansas will be a vital addition to the library of anyone who seeks a better understanding of the diverse and ever-fascinating Kansas avifauna.

From the Back Cover: "The comprehensive source on Kansas birds. Written by the state's foremost authorities and packed with data, detailed graphics, and marvelous color photos, this is a must-have reference for bird enthusiasts and professionals alike."--William H. Busby, coauthor of Kansas Breeding Bird Atlas

"An updated and expanded edition of a Kansas classic that remains the definitive word on its subject. The authors fully document the state's nearly 500 species of avifauna. Their expanded information on migration and breeding and new data on banding activities and results will be especially welcomed by ornithologists as well as by serious birders."--Paul Johnsgard, author of Prairie Birds and Great Wildlife of the Great Plains
