People exploring nature in Southeast Texas can use this handy photographic field guide to identify 88 bird species. The birds in the guide are grouped by family for ease in identification, and the accompanying text indicates size, habitat, field marks, and seasonal occurrence. The guide's six double-sided panels fold up into a packet narrow enough to fit in a back pocket yet sturdy enough to stand up under repeated use. Lamination has made the guide waterproof. The birds included in Birds of Southeast Texas and the Upper Texas Coast reside, migrate through, or spend part of the year in the area from the Texas/Louisiana border to south of Freeport and including the inland Piney Woods and Coastal Prairie regions.
