Birds of Northeast Texas
Birds of Northeast Texas is an annotated guide, for both novice and experienced birders, to the 390 species of birds that have been reliably recorded in the twentytwo counties of northeast Texas. Brief introductory chapters describe the area's geography and habitats and give readers an idea of where to find the best birdwatching spots. The species accounts explain each species' status, distribution, and period of occurrence in the region. They often also include a short narrative about habitat preference, unusual records, or some other interesting or unique aspect of a particular species. The species accounts are followed by lists of poorly documented ""hypothetical"" species, extinct species, and introduced species. A vibrant color section highlights the region's ""specialty"" birds, as well as rare finds. Northeast Texas is a popular destination for many people seeking various types of outdoor recreation, such as fishing, hunting, hiking, and camping. As the area becomes better known for its surprisingly rich number of species, serious birders from around the country will want to add this region's specialties and migrants to their bird lists.
