Kim Eckerts Book is the best book for birding Minnesota, The best birding sites are all listed with helpful descriptions of the sites themselves. The species accounts are very accurate and helpful. It is a valuable guide for both visitors and residents here. I still use it all the time and I live here.......but....It is VERY poorly organized, the maps are archaic and difficult to read, I often meet visitors who are baffled by them. so plan on using other maps as your primary resource and the book as a secondary. The sites are all listed by county rather than region, which can be confusing as well if you don't know Minnesota. and the organization of sites in relationship to the maps is a mess. Rather than using the name of the site on the map a letter system is used( A, B ,aa, ab.....ect)very difficult to follow at times. With that being said, I still reccomend this book to anyone birding in Minnesota, the information in this book has helped me to know when and where to find birds, and helped me to add species to my list. No other guide exists that comes close, but be patient and prepared it's not an easy guide to use.

This guidebook for Minnesota was certainly a great addition to my birding library. It is definitely a fine sourcebook for the serious birder. The detailed maps for finding specific species are a tremendous aid. My husband and I found both the elusive Three-toed Woodpecker and the Black-backed Woodpecker in the areas indicated. I would recommend this book highly for the serious birder who is in the process of adding new species to their life list.

Kim Eckert has written the definitive birders' guide to Minnesota birding. With detailed maps, species records and useful anecdotes, Kim makes finding even the most unusual birds possible. One might think that Kim flies with the birds--how else would he know their habits so well?
Kim is known as one of the United State's most skilled and competent trip leaders. He is also known by those who have the pleasure of working with him as a gentleman.
This guide is a must for anyone interested in birding some of the hottest sites in the United States. As most birders know, upper Minnesota can be most exciting in the winter, and Kim shows us that this region and the rest of the state has much to offer throughout the year.
If you plan to bird in Minnesota, don't leave home without taking Kim Eckert along...get this book!

This it an excellent guide to good birding spots throughout MN. Author has outstanding knowledge of MN and does as super job getting us to the best spots in each county, and he throws a little humor in too. I keep a copy of this book in my car when every I travel out state. - Jim Hughes
