If I remember right, there's also one in the series for coastal Texas,
which is a little confusing on directions in places unless they've
revised it since I used it some years ago, but is also excellent. ABA
may have added a west Texas guide by now, too.
Both guides are first-rate, and as Bill says, there are a number of
uncanny bits where they recommend very specific locations behind X
building or whatever for a particular species, and even years after they
were written, you go there and there are the birds. We found
white-collared seed eaters in an obscure corner behind a library that way.
Dunno where you're headed in Texas, but the Rio Grande Valley and the
southern coast are a fabulous place to go in mid-winter. South Texas is
particularly delicious raptor territory. I found the Aransas refuge on
the coast a particularly magical place, and just loaded with great birds.
