A Birder's Guide to the Rio Grande Valley of Texas (Lane ABA Birdfinding Guides Ser #414 Reviews
In my opinion, South Texas is one of the nation's premier birding areas (along with Southeast Arizona and South Florida). This guide is an excellent introduction to South Texas birding, and as with other guides in the ABA series, it provides a wealth of information regarding the best times & places to find birds (and other vertebrates). Some of the birds I have found using this guide: Least Grebe (Santa Ana National Wildlife Refuge), Neotropic Cormorant (Falcon Dam), Masked Duck & Northern Jacana (Sea Drift), White-tailed Hawk (Rockport), Plain Chachalaca, Great Kiskadee, Green Jay, Olive Sparrow & Green Kingfisher, Audubon's Oriole (San Ygnacio), Montezuma Quail (Davis Mountains), Whooping Crane (Aransas Bay), White-tipped Dove & Altamira Oriole(Salineno), Pauraque (Bentson-Rio Grande), Buff-bellied Hummingbird (McAllen), Ringed Kingfisher (Zapata) and Colima Warbler (Big Bend National Park).
