Editorial Reviews

Paul Lehman

“A fine overview of the status and distribution of Texas’ 623 species documented through 2002. There is just the right level of detail for such a readable, portable summary covering the incredible diversity of birds found within the Lone Star State. Accurate, and with excellent range maps.”--Paul Lehman, Chief Range-Map consultant for the Sibley, National Geographic Society, and Roger Tory Peterson field guides; past editor, Birding magazine
Great Plains Research

“. . . includes some stunning images of Mexican and less-well-known Texas species . . . the authors have provided a unique and elegant publication that is truly an important contribution to Texas ornithology.” --Great Plains Research
Victoria Advocate

“Everyone interested in Texas birds must have the Handbook of Texas Birds, a marvelous book. It is full of up-to-date information about Texas birds that cannot be found in one place anywhere else. [The annotations] are full of good information that anyone interested in birds will sooner or later refer to when trying to better understand their own yard’s birds or species seen in various other locations throughout the state.”--Victoria Advocate
Abilene Reporter-News

“The useful and attractive guide includes 140 color photos and more than 600 maps detailing where each species can be found in Texas.”--Abilene Reporter-News
Indiana Audubon Quarterly - Charles E. Keller

“An excellent account of the birds of the Lone Star State and one that should provide information for, not only residents of that state, but travelers and others interested in the myriad of birdlife that can be found there. I especially liked the treatment of those species not documented by some physical evidence to a separate category in an appendix. The fine photographs depict visual physical evidence, perhaps Indiana can follow suit with a similar guide.”--Indiana Audubon Quarterly
Choice

“. . . an attractive handbook that birders, both serious and casual, will find valuable when visiting this state with its very diverse avifauna. . . Given the increasing popularity of birding as a pastime for young and old, this book should be in the natural history of most public libraries and colleges.”--Choice
