A Birder's Guide to the Texas Coast will be indispensable as your field guide to one of the world's premier birding destinations. The Texas coast is home to an amazing number of migrating and wintering birds, as well as many specialty resident and nesting species. The habitat diversity ranges from the Pineywoods to the Gulf prairies, from the coastal wetlands to the South Texas subtropics. The spring migration of neotropical birds along the coast is one of North America's most remarkable birding spectacles. And the region is host to some of the nation's largest congregations of herons, egrets, rails, shorebirds, gulls, and terns at any season. A Birder's Guide to the Texas Coast includes Species Accounts for over 170 Texas specialties, and more than 70 new sites, for a total of over 200 birding stops, as well as bar-graphs for 388 regularly occurring Texas Coast species.

""Parking Lot Birding: A Fun Guide to Discovering Birds in Texas" is for people who would love to see a wide variety of birds without hiking the winding trails often associated with serious birding. Divided geographically, with each of the nine sections centered on a large urban area or defined ecoregion, each birding stop includes the name and address of a specific birding location, number of species that have been recorded in that location, and types of birding amenities offered. The parking area or the campus of a nature center often offers opportunities to see more birds more easily. From those cleared spaces, the parking lot birder can peer into the habitats that the birds need to thrive-the thickets, woodlands, wetlands, or fields that extend beyond the manicured areas. We don't have to trek arduously into the hinterlands to have meaningful wildlife encounters"--

In the last thirty years, the Upper Texas Coast has become a “must go” destination for birders around the globe. This book will serve as an essential companion to the customary field guide and pair of binoculars for all visitors to Houston, High Island, Galveston, Freeport, or any of the area’s other exciting birding spots. It also places the birdlife of the region, a seven-county area with a larger bird list than forty-three states, into historical and ecological contexts. Authors Eubanks, Behrstock, and Weeks—all recognized authorities on the migrant and resident birds of this region—present a thorough introduction to the area’s history, physiography, and avifauna. Then, in generous discussions of bird families and species, they synthesize years of records, tracking the comings and goings of more than 480 birds and incorporating their own lifetimes of experience to create an “ornithological mosaic” of lasting significance.
