About this book

The Northern Great Plains region hosts one of the most remarkable assortments of bird species on earth. Here the ranges of many birds overlap, offering birders the unique possibility of glimpsing both eastern and western-or northern and southern-species on a single outing. In the spring and fall, vast numbers of migrating birds pass through the Great Plains region on their way to summer nesting grounds and winter residences. With the highest elevations between the Rockies and the Alps, the Black Hills provide an island of evergreen mountains amidst the surrounding prairies and badlands, and are home to birds found nowhere else in vicinity.

This book covers North Dakota, South Dakota, and Nebraska along with eastern Montana, eastern Wyoming, northwestern Colorado, and the eastern foothills of the Rocky Mountains. With 255 colour photographs, the book profiles seventy-seven of the bird species that birdwatchers and outdoor enthusiasts are most likely to see, along with pictures of similar species and tips for distinguishing them in the field.
