This is the book you need if you want to visit the best birding sites in the Lower Rio Grande Valley of Texas

Dave Gosney writes:

‘I’ve visited Texas several times and always been really impressed, not just by the quality and quantity of birds but also by the facilities for getting close to birds and the helpfulness of Texan birdwatchers. In recent years several new sites have been developed and this guide directs you to all of those, pointing the way to exact locations for many of the best birds including difficult species such as Mountain Plover, Tropical Kingbird and Pauraque.’
