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

"Parking Lot Birding: A Fun Guide to Discovering Birds in Texas," is for anyone who would love to observe a wide variety of birds in easy-access locations.  From the heart of Dallas to the Muleshoe Wildlife Refuge in the plains north of Lubbock , across urban areas and ecoregions, author Jennifer L. Bristol uses her experiences as a former park ranger and lifelong nature enthusiast to highlight birding stops and "feather facts."

Bristol coordinates the Texas Children in Nature program of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department.  She is the 2018 and 2019 recipient of the Most Valuable Birder Award in the Great Texas Birding Classic, and has contributed articles to Texas Parks and Wildlife Magazine and other publications.  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!

BookWoman is delighted to host this event, and will have signed copies of the book available for readers to order.

"Parking Lot Birding: A Fun Guide to Discovering Birds in Texas" is for people who would love to see a wide variety of birds without hiking the winding trails often associated with serious birding. Divided geographically, with each of the nine sections centered on a large urban area or defined ecoregion, each birding stop includes the name and address of a specific birding location, number of species that have been recorded in that location, and types of birding amenities offered. The parking area or the campus of a nature center often offers opportunities to see more birds more easily. From those cleared spaces, the parking lot birder can peer into the habitats that the birds need to thrive-the thickets, woodlands, wetlands, or fields that extend beyond the manicured areas. We don't have to trek arduously into the hinterlands to have meaningful wildlife encounters"--
