Description - Birds of the Texas Hill Country by Mark W. Lockwood
"Count yourself fortunate that this book has arrived and that Lockwood is your guide. I recommend that you settle back for an enjoyable and highly informative read, and then follow Lockwood's directions to a personal field study of Edwards Plateau birdlife. And by all means, keep this book close at hand. This now is the modern baseline to which your discoveries will be compared." - from the Foreword Situated in the centre of a state renowned for its abundant and varied birdlife, the Texas Hill Country provides habitat for 419 resident and migratory species, including the endangered Golden-cheeked Warbler and Black-capped Vireo. Mark Lockwood, a biologist with Texas Parks and Wildlife, has monitored these and other bird populations throughout the Hill Country for many years. In this book, he offers a complete, up-to-date guide to the status and distribution of every bird species reliably reported on the Edwards Plateau. The species accounts focus on four key characteristics of each bird: relative abundance, distribution within the region, habitat, and timing of occurrence.
In addition, Lockwood discusses species that have been reported, but not documented, in the Hill Country, as well as those that might be expected to occur. For birders and ornithologists less familiar with the region, Lockwood also gives a general introduction to the ecology of the Edwards Plateau and to the flora and birdlife found in eighteen parks and birding areas. Mark W. Lockwood is a conservation biologist in the Natural Resources Program of Texas Parks and Wildlife and secretary of the Texas Bird Records Committee.
