Then, in generous discussions of bird families and species, they synthesize years of records, tracking the comings and goings of more than 480 birds and incorporating their own lifetimes of experience to create an “ornithological mosaic” of lasting significance.

""Parking Lot Birding: A Fun Guide to Discovering Birds in Texas" is for people who would love to see a wide variety of birds without hiking the winding trails often associated with serious birding. Divided geographically, with each of the nine sections centered on a large urban area or defined ecoregion, each birding stop includes the name and address of a specific birding location, number of species that have been recorded in that location, and types of birding amenities offered. The parking area or the campus of a nature center often offers opportunities to see more birds more easily. From those cleared spaces, the parking lot birder can peer into the habitats that the birds need to thrive-the thickets, woodlands, wetlands, or fields that extend beyond the manicured areas. We don't have to trek arduously into the hinterlands to have meaningful wildlife encounters"--
