A Guide to Bird Finding East of the Mississippi is a revised edition of the original. It features updated pen and ink drawings by prominent ornithologist George Miksch Sutton and is still regarded as one of the best detailed and comprehensive guides. For each of the 26 states featured the author pinpoints the main species of birds, representative habitats and more.
