Overview

From the expert editors at Cool Springs Press, a series of regional bird books that love the outdoors as much as you do.
 
“Patience is a virtue,” said no backyard bird ever. That’s why, when these busy creatures come flitting into view, you need to have your resources ready at a moment’s notice. Have you spent all this time mistaking temporarily intoxicated Cedar Waxwings for injured ones? A forgivable error, but with the Field Guide to Backyard Birds of the Midwest, you’ll be duly crediting those fermented wild berries in no time. Each book in this series has been conveniently packaged in a field-sized 5”x8” format: large enough to showcase the gorgeous close-up photography within, but small enough to keep dependably at the ready. In this edition, each of the Midwest region’s 80 most popular bird species gets its own page, complete with a concise description, preferred habitat, feeding and migration habits, and tips for attracting them to your bird feeders. Illustrated with colorful range maps, vibrant images, and a brilliant tabbed layout that helps you quickly search for birds by color, this portable field book will never again leave that elusive Pileated Woodpecker unimpressed with your sub-par suet supply.
 
Midwestern states include Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Ohio, and Nebraska.
 
Look for our other four Field Guide to Backyard Birds titles, covering the Mid-Atlantic, South, Northeast, and West regions of the United States.
