I found a more extensive Iowa field guide that actually tells you where the birds can be found, so I went with that instead. I am eager to try and get to a few of those places.
Do tell! What is the Iowa book?

It is not all of Iowa's birds but does have a checklist of all birds seen in Iowa at the back of the book. For us, this was a step up from Stan Tekiela's Birds of Iowa. We've not used either in awhile as our birding skills finally outgrew them, but they were very helpful early on. We mostly use the Crossley's and Stokes NA Birds now.
Iowa Birds gives very specific locations for where to find the less common birds, which was helpful to us. We found it in the local section of Barnes and Noble.
Are you new to birding?

I feel like a newbie, but I've been actively attracting & identifying birds in my yard for 7 years this month. I get out a lot less. One of my kids joined Iowa Young Birders last year, so I've been attending field days with her, which has been lots of fun.
