In the summer of 2009, Northwest Arkansas Audubon Society published BIRDS in Northwestern Arkansas, an ecological perspective by NWAAS field trip organizer and board member Joseph C. Neal.  


BIRDS covers all species occurring in the western Ozarks of Arkansas. It provides dates and places where birds have been seen, many of the active field observers and researchers involved with these sightings, special records of large flocks and peak migration periods, and many comments on aspects of the ecology of the region that help shape bird distribution and abundance. An introductory essay presents the ecological and human landscape. The book also includes an extensive literature cited section, plus an index of bird names. All birds are included, including some that are extinct.

A printable PDF file of the book (
Birds in northwestern Arkansas) is available on the NWAAS website.
