The Quick Reference Guide to The Birds of Nebraska, by Greg R. Homel, is a quick and easy to use, light-weight, durable, all-weather field guide to the inspiring, incredibly varied and colorful birdlife inhabiting the State of Nebraska.
Stunning digital photographs depict more than 120 species of the State’s common and notable birds, enabling users to identify nearly every bird they encounter—day or night—within the guide’s impressive area of coverage. Designed to satisfy the needs of birders of all interest levels—but especially beginning and intermediate users trying to “make sense of it all”—this beautiful and amazingly informative six-fold guide will be an indispensable companion for visitors and residents alike, on all regional outings.
Whether you’re seeking booming Greater Prairie-Chickens on the Switzer Ranch in the eastern Sandhills at Burwell; on a quest to see the world’s greatest concentration of cranes (primarily Sandhill Cranes but also Whooping Cranes) along the North Platte River near Kearney; chasing spring migrants attracted to the still remarkably wooded riverine floodplains of the Missouri, Snake and Niobrara, rivers; birding the wildflower-borne prairie potholes and sandhills that pepper the Great Plains in much of the State; planning an expedition to the region’s far-flung constellation of wildlife refuges, national forests, state and national monuments; or combining birding with sightseeing or business at any season, you’ll be glad to have this booklet.
This affordable guide will serve as a lasting memento of any visit to Nebraska and will conveniently fit into any daypack, pocket or glove-compartment, facilitating easy field identification—whether in an Omaha garden, on a family vacation to Lincoln, or a serious birding trip visiting all the best birding hot spots in The Cornhusker State.
