      This completely 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.

      Bruce G. Peterjohn, formerly of Ohio and a graduate of The College of Wooster works at the Patuxent Wildlife Research Center in Laurel, Maryland, where he coordinates the North American Breeding Bird Survey. He is also the midwestern regional editor of American Birds.

-The book has a Smythe sewn binding for durability and extensive usage.
