The centerpiece of the book is a thoroughly researched status and distribution chart, 46 pages long, that tells which birds occur and how frequently in each of the state's ten birding regions. Such data has never been offered along regional lines before. This book includes more than 120 maps to help you find your way, a list of addresses and phone numbers to help you plan your birding trip, and a gallery of illustrations, drawn by artist Mimi Hoppe Wolf, of the 32 birds that can dependably be found only in Texas. Also included are sections on pelagic birding and the Great Texas Coastal Birding Trail. A big state requires a big guide. Make Birding Texas a part of your next ornithological adventure in the Lone Star State.
