Local Bird Checklist

I got an email from Bob at Wild Bird Rescue that an Eagle Scout was looking for a list of all of the birds in the local area. I mailed the young man a copy of "The Birds of North Central Texas," published by the North Texas Bird and Wildlife Club.

Unfortunately, I am not aware of an electronic copy, but the club does have copies available at their meetings and occasionally at bird-related presentations at River Bend Nature Center. Every member of the local organization gets a copy of the checklist when they join along with a monthly newsletter of local sitings and reports of bird-related trips and educational opportunities--a deal at $5 per year dues.
The checklist is an excellent resource; I use it frequently.

Good birding!
