About this book

The Texas coast offers rich avian treasures for expert birders and beginners alike, if only they know where to look. For those familiar with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department's maps to the Great Texas Coastal Birding Trail, Finding Birds on the Great Texas Coastal Birding Trail on the Upper Texas Coast offers more – more information, more convenient and detailed maps, more pictures, more finding tips, and more birding advice from one of the trail's creators, Ted Lee Eubanks Jr., and trail experts Robert A. Behrstock and Seth Davidson. For those new to the trail, the book is the perfect companion for learning where to find and how to bird the very best venues on this part of the Texas coast.

In an opening tutorial on habitat and seasonal strategies for birding the Upper Texas Coast, the authors include tips on how to take advantage of the famous (but elusive) fallouts of birds that happen here. They then briefly discuss the basics of birding by ear and the rewards of passive birding before turning to the trail itself and each of more than 120 birding sites from the Louisiana-Texas border, through Galveston and Houston, to just south of Freeport. Advice oninding bird groups

While not intended as a field identification guide, Finding Birds on the Great Texas Coastal Birding Trail contains more than 175 color photographs of birds and their coastal habitat, giving readers an excellent feel for the trail's diversity and abundance. Whether you are making your annual spring pilgrimage to Texas, leisurely traveling with the family along the coast, or wondering what to do during a layover in Houston, using this book as your guide to the trail will greatly enhance your birding experience.

Media reviews

"It's a good thing, too. Clear structure and clean graphics make this well-organized book a vital resource for the tremendous task of birding in Texas [...] You won't find this level of detail on the birding trail map alone. But the best part is the Target Bird sidebars."
Bird Watcher's Digest

"A superb guide to help birders navigate the upper coast trail [...] colorful, detailed maps [...] a great companion for those new to the trail learning how to bird the area, casual visitors and also veterans venturing to unfamiliar birding locations or returning to favorite Texas hotspots."
Wildbird

"The authors' familiarity and passion for this portion of the state comes through in their writing. Authors regularly take their discussions beyond the county boundaries [...] I believe this work will serve as an indispensable reference for professionals and amateur birders with an interest in the avifauna of this region."
Quarterly Review of Biology

"This is a great resource for anyone with any interest in Texas birds."
