Robbins and Easterla offer the most comprehensive treatment of the birds recorded in Missouri since Otto Widmann's landmark publication at the turn of the century. Birds of Missouri couples an exhaustive literature review with much unpublished information to present a historical perspective, as well as an up-to-date assessment of each species recorded in the state.
