    1. A fine gem, summarizing the birds most likely to be seen in Kansas. Each bird gets a full page with photo and helpful information like how to recognize them, where to find them, and when to find them. The photos are excellent! New birders will quickly find a species without sorting through the clutter of a larger field guide. Experienced birders may glean details such as where and when to find target species.

    2. The book is easy to navigate while birding. I wish more was written about the birding hotspots and more attention given to spots that are not located near the most populated towns in Kansas
