The Bird Literature of Oklahoma is an annotated bibliography of works pertaining to Oklahoma birds. The purpose is to provide easy reference for persons interested in conducting research and surveys on Oklahoma birds, and for others needing access to information on the state’s avifauna. Most of the works prior to 1984 were compiled by Joseph A. Grzybowski and Gary D. Schnell and published as Oklahoma Ornithology: An Annotated Bibliography by the University of Oklahoma Press in 1984.
Major North American ornithology journals as well as regional journals, and periodicals that publish works having to do with wildlife management were examined to discover articles pertaining to Oklahoma that should be included. Theses and dissertations reporting on research conducted in Oklahoma, Pittman-Robertson Reports of the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation (with original data), environmental assessment reports that contain origial data, and reports of the International Biological Program were thouroughly searched. Numerous other sources were also searched. References to the popular literature when an artilce is of such scope as to be of potential scientific or historical interest are included.
