About this book

Given its central location and favourable habitats, Kansas is blessed with a surprising diversity of birds: 453 species documented within its borders. This book focuses on the 203 species that breed in the state - from the Green-winged Teal to the Great-tailed Grackle - to create an accurate and timely reference based on standardized methods of data collection. The Kansas Breeding Bird Atlas represents the efforts of 180 volunteers who diligently sought out birds over six years, observing their behavior and searching for active nests and fledged young throughout the state, whether in tallgrass prairies, riparian forests, or wetlands. In addition to these volunteers' efforts, Busby and Zimmerman gathered a wealth of information relating the observations to ecological factors affecting the birds' habitat selection. In the book, each species is conveniently presented in a two-page spread containing a line drawing, descriptive account, data summary table, distribution map, and, in most instances, a table of breeding status by physiographic region and BBS (Breeding Bird Survey) map. Breeding codes - possible, probable, or confirmed - are assigned in accordance with recommendations of the North American Ornithology Atlas Committee. The illustrations consist of classic drawings by Orville Rice and Robert Mengel, plus over one hundred new drawings by Dan Kilby. This is the definitive guide for anyone, amateur or professional, concerned with the activities of Kansas's breeding birds, and it provides information essential to environmental and conservation planning as well. The Kansas Breeding Bird Atlas is the one source for complete and authoritative data on the avian species that breed in Kansas.
