revised and updated bible of Buckeye birders is also a handy reference
for Ohio backyard birdwatchers. The Birds of Ohio documents
the species that nest in, migrate through, and sometimes mysteriously
appear in the state-more than 400 species in all. Included are
details on distribution and abundance, migration and nesting dates,
and, for the first time, maps from the Ohio Breeding Bird Atlas.
Of special interest is new information on winter gulls, hawk migration,
and northern birds in hemlock forests-the Magnolia Warbler, for
example-along with 12 years of new records, such as the resurgence
of Wild Turkey populations and the state's first Boreal Owl.
