Paul Johnsgard, author of Prairie Birds "A delightful and authoritative introduction to Kansas birds with a wealth of information, on how and where to find them." William H. Busby, coauthor of Kansas Breeding Bird Atlas"

A fine gem, summarizing the birds most likely to be seen in Kansas. Each bird gets a full page with photo and helpful information like how to recognize them, where to find them, and when to find them. The photos are excellent! New birders will quickly find a species without sorting through the clutter of a larger field guide. Experienced birders may glean details such as where and when to find target species.

Easy to read, more than just a reference. Some prior bird knowledge is helpful - it is faster to look up a bird if you know it is a warbler vs. an insect catcher. The photos are amazing. Very enjoyable read.

This is a lovely book for backyard birding! I put out 3 different types of seed this winter to help the birds through this cold and snowy season and wanted to know who was visiting my backyard. This book codes birds easily so I could find them and learn more about them. Small enough to keep near the back window, always in reach, this is a great reference for our state. With spring around the corner I look forward to identifying new bird friends in my neighborhood!

Great book for beginning birders in the state of Kansas. This book allowed me to make sense of the birding world around me without being overwhelmed. Using a field guide only would have made my learning curve much longer. This book is a must have for any beginning or moderate level birder in Kansas. Heck even for just backyard birding it would be great.
