Texas boasts greater bird diversity than almost any state, with more than six hundred species living in or passing through during spring and fall migrations.

Jennifer L. Bristol's Parking Lot Birding speaks to people who would love to observe a wide variety of birds in easy access locations that don't require arduous hikes or a degree in ornithology.

As she explains, 'I have personally trudged down hundreds of miles of trails in Texas, loaded down with gear, searching for birds, only to return to the parking lot to find what I was looking for.'Drawing on her experience as a former park ranger and lifelong nature enthusiast, Bristol explores ninety birding locations that are open to the public and accessible regardless of ability or mobility.

Divided by geography, with each of the nine sections centered on a large urban area or defined ecoregion, Parking Lot Birding: A Fun Guide to Discovering Birds in Texas will take readers to birds in locales from the busy heart of Dallas to the remote Muleshoe Wildlife Refuge in the plains north of Lubbock.

Each birding stop includes the name and address of a specific birding location, number of species that have been recorded, and types of birding amenities offered.

Locational accounts end with a 'Feather Fact' that provides interesting and relevant details about selected birds in a particular region. You never know what you might see when on the beaten path, especially in a state as big and ecologically diverse as Texas.

So grab your binoculars and let's go birding!
