What the author & publisher says:
A 40-page booklet with numerous sketch maps of the main birding sites in Southern Texas and a 90-minute DVD showing a good selection of the species and the main birding sites in Southern Texas
This DVD shows you exactly why South Texas is one of the best places for a birding trip. It features many of the special birds that can’t be found anywhere else in the United States and shows you just how exciting the birding can be in winter at various wetlands, lagoons, state parks and feeding stations.
The best sites – covers all the best birding locations from Falcon Dam in the west, down to South Padre Island on the coast, visiting all the best sites in between.
The best birds – enjoy footage of no less than 125 species including most of the best birds in the Rio Grande Valley such as orioles, kiskadees, kingfishers, jays, woodpeckers and lots of gulls, waders, terns and waterfowl, all filmed using high-definition digital video cameras. We saw and filmed so many birds that this film is longer than usual (90 minutes) but, don’t worry, it’s still the same price.
The best information – find out more about the sites and their birds, getting the best possible idea of which sites should be prioritised on your next trip.
This film shows exactly what it’s like to visit the Lower Rio Grande Valley in winter. You’ll see footage of the most exciting species, you’ll get an idea of what each of the sites is like and you’ll learn more about the area and its birds.Fatbirder View
I greatly enjoyed re-visiting these sites and can vouch not just for the accuracy of their portrayal but that Dave captures the atmosphere perfectly. If you are going it alone in the Rio Grande Valley watch the DVD before you do and take the booklet with you – you can’t do better!
