A Field Guide to Birds of the Big Bend

by Wauer, Roland


Big Bend has the widest variety of birds in any of North America’s national parks and, due to its location on migratory routes and three distinct ecosystems, has immense bird diversity throughout the year. Author Roland Wauer, the expert on birds of the Big Bend, has completely revised his well-respected classic.The second edition of A Field Guide to Birds of the Big Bend (Texas Field Guide Series) includes 444 species of birds and numerous status changes from 1985. This book is to help the Big Bend visitor locate the particular bird they want to see. In the author’s words, it is a where-to-go-to-find-what-book, not a bird identification guide. Wauer’s wealth of experience and entertaining tidbits of close encounters help create a definitive resource for the Big Bend, a must-visit birding hot spot.

Includes behavior notes, status reports, statistics, and records. Illustrations by Nancy McGowan.
