The TOS Handbook of Texas Birds, Second Edition
Publication Year: 2014
“Everyone interested in Texas birds must have the Handbook of Texas Birds, a marvelous book. It is full of up-to-date information about Texas birds that cannot be found in one place anywhere else. [The annotations] are full of good information that anyone interested in birds will sooner or later refer to when trying to better understand their own yard’s birds or species seen in various other locations throughout the state.”--Victoria Advocate
“The useful and attractive guide includes 140 color photos and more than 600 maps detailing where each species can be found in Texas.”--Abilene Reporter-News
“. . . an attractive handbook that birders, both serious and casual, will find valuable when visiting this state with its very diverse avifauna. . . Given the increasing popularity of birding as a pastime for young and old, this book should be in the natural history of most public libraries and colleges.”--Choice
