Publisher Comments:

For more than twenty-five years, FalconGuides have set the standard for outdoor recreation guidebooks. Written by top outdoors experts and enthusiasts, each guide invites you to experience the endless adventure and rugged beauty of the great outdoors.

Named the Birdiest City in the United States since 2003, Corpus Christi has one of the richest collections of birdlife in the United States - with more than 510 species concentrated in this southeastern part of Texas, from the vagrant Cape May Warbler to the common Red-Winged Blackbird.

Birding Corpus Christi and the Coastal Bend guides you to seventy-eight of the best birding locations between Tivoli and Rivera. Here you can see a huge assortment of shorebirds and nesting waterbirds, wintering species, tropical surprises from the Lower Rio Grande Valley, and migrating birds from the Eastern, Mississippi, and Central Flyways. Organized by region, this comprehensive guide includes everything you need for a successful birding trip.

Inside you'll find:

Accurate bird-finding information for the entire region

Descriptions of each site, with information about key species

Where and when to go, how to get there, and what you'll see

Seasonal distributions of 358 bird specialties
