Here you can see a huge assortment of shorebirds and nesting waterbirds, wintering species, tropical surprises from the Lower Rio Grande Valley, and migrating birds from the Eastern, Mississippi, and Central Flyways. Organized by region, this comprehensive guide includes everything you need for a successful birding trip.

Inside you'll find:
- Accurate bird-finding information for the entire region
- Descriptions of each site, with information about key species
