Book description

Birds of Chicagoland features over 120 of Mark Swanson’s best bird photographs taken in the Chicago, Illinois, area from 2004 to 2016. Swanson carefully selected these photos from his archive of over 4,000 Chicagoland bird images.

The photos were taken at dozens of locations in Cook, Lake, McHenry, and Will counties, including Montrose Point, North Pond Nature Sanctuary, North Park Village Nature Center, The Grove, Rollins Savanna, Illinois Beach State Park, Moraine Hills State Park, and Midewin National Tallgrass Prairie.

Birds of Chicagoland is the first volume in the Moments in Nature photo book series. The books in this series are not field guides. Rather, they are collections of photographic portraits and observations of animal behavior. While the photographs do serve as records of species, more importantly they are documents of specific moments in the active and complex lives of individuals.

A nice gift for a birder or anyone who appreciates birds!
