With this guide you can explore over 110 great birding locations throughout the state. Some of the Midwest's best birding occurs in the Prairie State, thanks to the rich variety of habitat that includes woodlands, wetlands, hills, sandstone canyons, savannas, prairies, cypress swamps, and sand dunes. You will also find good birding on the expansive Lake Michigan shoreline and along the Mississippi and Illinois rivers. The book includes detailed site maps and bar graphs showing status and distribution. Author Sheryl De Vore is an expert Illinois birder and serves as the Chief Editor of Meadowlark, the quarterly journal of the Illinois Ornithological Society. She knows the rich bird life in the state and where to observe it. Birding Illinois will prove invaluable when you plan your next birding trip.
