American Birding Association Field Guide to Birds of Illinois

The diverse habitats of Illinois–prairies, savannas, rivers, marshes, forests, and beaches–offer a home for hundreds of types of birds throughout the year. More than just a “flyover state”, Illinois welcomes hundreds of species of migrating birds during the spring and fall. From the shores of Lake Michigan in the north to Central Plains and the magnificent Shawnee National Forest, Illinois is a magnificent state for birds and birders. Written by a third-generation Illinoisan birdwatcher and filled with over 500 color images of birds in native habitats, this is the perfect companion for anyone interested in learning about the natural history and diversity of the Prairie State’s birds–and when and where to find them.
