About this book

Guide to the status and distribution of every bird species reliably reported on the Edwards Plateau in Texas. Species accounts focus on four key characteristics of each bird: relative abundance, distribution within the region, habitat, and timing of occurrence. In addition, Lockwood discusses species that have been reported, but not documented, in the Hill Country, as well as those that might be expected to occur.

Media reviews

Count yourself fortunate that this book has arrived and that Lockwood is your guide. I recommend that you settle back for an enjoyable and highly informative read, and then follow Lockwood's directions to a personal field study of Edwards Plateau birdlife. And by all means, keep this book close at hand. This now is the modern baseline to which your discoveries will be compared. - from the Foreword
