In each part, the sites are presented in alphabetical order and keyed to section maps. In each site description, the birds and seasons of particular ornithological interest are discussed in the greatest detail. Part four provides a checklist of the birds of Ohio, with symbols denoting geographical location, seasonal presence, and numerical status.
Information is also included on birding and natural history organizations, taped rare-bird alerts, and related publications.
