I keep a collection of bird books for neighboring states as reference, especially for Missouri and Oklahoma, since northwest Arkansas is snug up against both. Some others ion Arkansas may find the following of interest:
A new book, The Status and Distribution of Birds in Missouri by Mark B. Robbins, is a comprehensive, up-to-date compilation of the 435 species that have been documented in Missouri. Primarily as a result of climate change, many speciesí status and distribution have changed in the past twenty-five years. Those changes are highlighted in this treatise. The dramatic change in avian nomenclature and taxonomy will be apparent when comparing this work with past publications and field guides. There are four maps and 24 photographs of unusual birds recorded in the state, all in color; 340 pages.
The book is online as a free download through KU ScholarWorks, the online institutional repository of the University of Kansas: http://hdl.handle.net/1808/26287
