On the morning of January 1, 2000, Mark Adams started counting birds. His goal was to find the largest number of species in one year in Texas. By the evening of December 31, he had tied the record of 489 species seen or heard within the state's borders in a single year. He saw 92% of all bird species reported in the state in 2000.
" [...] To me this was a worthwhile read, but it does suffer in comparison to the books I mentioned earlier. It doesn't have the humor of The Big Twitch, the drama is not as engrossing as in The Big Year, and it's not as engaging as Kingbird Highway. However, if you know that you enjoy this category of bird books then this entry is recommended. Likewise, it is also a good suggestion to those who would like to get an insight into birding in the Lone Star State. For everyone else, try one of those others first – especially Kingbird Highway."
