Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0892633042, Paperback)

No matter where you see birds in the city--in parks or woodlands, on power lines or in parking lots--they are the natural soul of the urban landscape. They enhance the city and the lives of those who watch them.

Nature writer B. C. Robison and wildlife photographer John Tveten have teamed up to produce this field guide for birders who want to identify the birds most commonly seen in Houston. Fifty-five species are included, ranging from such well-known favorites as the mockingbird and cardinal to the more exotic yellow-crowned night heron.

A full-color photograph for each bird appears alongside warm and often witty description. For quick reference, a summary of the primary field marks of the adult bird is also provided. This summary includes not only identifying features of the bird but also its habitats, the time of year it can be found, and its distinctive behavioral traits.

Aimed at the beginning birder, the guide also gives tips on buying binoculars and on attracting birds to your yard.
