Nebraska sits at the nexus of continental bird migration and serves as a home - either permanently or seasonally - for nearly 450 species. Major migratory routes pass through the state, creating numerous opportunities to observe the great variety of North American bird species. The annual crane migrations in spring are legendary, and other key events include winter concentrations of bald eagles, flocks of up to thirty thousand grebes, mergansers, and gulls at Lake McConaughy in late fall, and incredible concentrations of waterfowl in the Rainwater Basin in early spring. "Birds of Nebraska" captures the variety of Nebraska's ornithological possibilities in a style useful to hobbyists and professionals alike. For the first time in Nebraska ornithology, the authors have provided an exhaustive summary of state bird records compiled into concise but readable accounts of all species of birds reported in the state. This work covers taxonomy, early and late migration dates, high counts, nesting areas, and likely viewing locations. Roger S. Sharpe taught ornithology and directed the Environmental Studies Program at the University of Nebraska at Omaha. He is also a past president of the Nebraska Ornithologists' Union. W. Ross Silcock writes the "Seasonal Reports" for "The Nebraska Bird Review". Joel G. Jorgensen is chairman of the Nebraska Ornithologists' Union Records Committee.
