A comprehensive update of the classic from the state's foremost expert
In the nearly half-century since the first publication of the landmark Birds in Minnesota, the state and its bird populations have undergone dramatic changes. This newly revised, expanded edition reflects those changes as well as the most recent advances in birding, making it the indispensable resource for birdwatchers in Minnesota, both passionate amateur and professional. Featuring full-colour photographs and more than one thousand distribution maps, the updated Birds in Minnesota describes where and during which season the 443 species of birds in the state can be found.
Introductory comments by Carrol L. Henderson of the Minnesota DNR and Kim R. Eckert, author of A Birder's Guide to Minnesota, along with the expert contributions of David Cahlander of the Minnesota Ornithologists' Union, further enhance this new edition for today's Minnesota birders. This edition of Birds in Minnesota is the essential birding reference – at once authoritative and user-friendly, comprehensive and concise, eminently practical and a delight to peruse.
"Minnesota conservationists, birders, educators, and children, now and in the future, stand to benefit for decades from this new and monumental update of Birds in Minnesota by my friend and lifetime Minnesota birder Robert B. Janssen. If you are not up to taking 'six round trips to the moon' to know Minnesota's birdlife, read this book, and take a moment to thank Bob for his lifetime passion for birding in Minnesota and for sharing what he has learned."
