Illinois Ornithology: Intro

This guide focuses primarily on the work of the Illinois Natural History Survey.

The Illinois State Laboratory of Natural History provided early documentation of bird species present in Illinois beginning in the 1800s.  The Illinois Natural History Survey has continued research on bird populations.  This guide covers key ornithological publications of INHS, most of which are available online.  For information about ongoing monitoring work, see the Illinois Bird Counts and Inventories page.
