Special field notes give additional i.d. or behavioral information and detailed maps show the range of each bird's habitat. With comprehensive coverage of the region and valuable advice from experts, these user-friendly guides will quickly become favorite companions on the journey to lifelong birding. In Texas, birders will find the richest possible range of species in this ultimate migration ground that draws birds from around the world.
