About this book

The Birds of Indiana is a treasure-trove for ornithologists, casual birders, and art-lovers everywhere. Drawing on decades of field work and data collection and featuring the paintings of one of America's finest bird artists, this classic work is an introduction, a reference, and most importantly, a natural history of Indiana's birds, including over 390 species. Authors Russell E. Mumford and Charles E. Keller provide detailed information on each species, including the bird's past and current status, the timing of migrations, the density and location of populations month by month, and the influence of habitat. Indispensable for the text alone, the paintings by William Zimmerman, one of America's greatest bird artists, make The Birds of Indiana a collector's item that will be admired and appreciated for centuries. With a scientist's eye and a craftsman's skill, Zimmerman brings each of the 165 birds that nests in the state to life in lavish detail. Readers can almost feel the feathers – and the life force beneath them – in his birds. Each intricate painting reveals the plumage (including both male and female when there are significant differences), the nest and eggs, background habitat, and in many cases a wildflower or two.

A work of art as well as science, The Birds of Indiana belongs in any and every collection of bird books. No ornithologist or casual birder – expert or beginner – in Indiana, the Midwest, or the eastern United States can afford to be without it.

Media reviews

"This fine book sumptuously illustrated by one of America's premier bird artists, William Zimmerman, is a celebration of the birds that live in the heartland of our continent. Indiana boasts a state list of over 390 species, close to half of the avifauna of North America north of Mexico [...] Of the 390-plus species on the Indiana list, 165 nest and reproduce in the state. These are portrayed by William Zimmerman's paintings which are artfully designed and meticulously executed in the best tradition of Audubon. This handsome publication is not intended to be a field guide. It goes far beyond that limited scope. Every birdwatcher and birder will treasure it and so will the lover or collector of fine books."
– Roger Tory Peterson, American naturalist, ornithologist, artist, and educator
