A Birders' Guide to Missouri Public Lands is a serially updated compilation of descriptions of public lands with site information from a birding perspective.

These descriptions are similar to the hunting/fishing oriented blurbs for each site in Missouri’s Conservation Atlas and on the Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) website. A Birder’s Guide to Missouri Public Lands appears in serial form in The Bluebird, the quarterly journal of the Audubon Society of Missouri (ASM), and as a frequently-updated cumulative set of entries on ASM’s website, www.mobirds.org.

The website guide has been updated today.  There are now more than 50 sites on it. 

To view the contents, go to the webpage, click on the third from the left item in the banner head.  Three options come up. The top one contains the first two paragraphs above and more. 

The second gives entrance into the site information.  Note the county a site is in, then scroll to that county in the window provided,  The public land sites in that county will appear at the bottom of the screen (you may have to scroll down).  

The sites with descriptions are underlined and highlighted.  Click on the site name to view the entry.  You may print out the entry for reference when traveling.  On line maps and brochures may be viewed and printed as needed for most sites, even if no birding  description is available.

The third menu item is "submit your guide."  It is hoped that you will consider writing a guide description for one of your favorite sites.

Please take a look at the Birders' Guide to Missouri Public Lands.  We hope you find it useful.  We welcome suggestions for improvement.
