Bird watching is a regional hobby, and the birds that frequent the backyards of Illinois differ from the birds found in Michigan. This series of books are state-specific and highlight the birds that are found in each state. In addition to the profile, each bird entry includes a map to identity the specific range covered by the bird. 100 birds are presented via full-color photographs for accurate identification. Full-color seasonal section informs the reader of the migrating birds that can be seen that month, the foods that attract those birds, and the plants that can assist in attracting birds.
