OK, now I'd like to ask about recommendations for resources for Ecuador. Trip reports, CDs to start studying songs and calls would be especially useful. 
  I have the book by Robert Ridgely - and its GORGEOUS plates. 
  Thanks in advance.

Book covers southern half of Texas (Rio Grande, Edwards plateau, big
Bend area and more.

Can anyone recommend a guide to birding in Texas, something along the 
lines of Birding in Vermont?
