An annotated checklist with maps and photos. Occurrence, status and distribution. The new edition of an essential Texas birding reference.
With updated species accounts, all new photographs, and the first complete subspecies listing for Texas birds since 1995, the expanded and revised edition of The Texas Ornithological Society Handbook of Texas Birds is an indispensable companion for serious birders and anyone who wants to learn more about the avifauna of the state and region. The authors have assembled complete range maps and the latest timing-of-occurrence data for the 639 species that occur in Texas, providing authoritative annotations on abundance, status, and distribution.
This revised edition of the TOS Handbook includes stunning color photographs of the birds that attract avid birders to Texas from all over the world. Helpful appendixes also document presumptive, non-accepted, exotic, and review species, and a comprehensive reference section rounds out the offerings in this invaluable guide.
