Texas Birds 2.0

www.texastargetbirds.com



I have posted here a variety of birds that one might encounter in the state of Texas and I if my memory serves me well all of these photos were taken here in Texas over the past few years. Many species of birds vary in appearance depending on a number of factors such as time of year, age, sex and other factors so a photo seen here is at best an idea of what a bird of its given species might look like when encountered in the field. Where available I have posted multiple photos of the different species I have encountered which might be worth checking out if you are using this page to help identify a bird you have found. I will try to include links to other photos as time allows but if there isnít a link attached to a given photo I encourage you to browse my more complete photo list in my wildlife gallery.

I must say that I am very impressed with the variety of birds that can be found here in the state of Texas. Before I started looking for different birds I had no idea that such a variety could be found so close to my home. I hope that this page makes at least a small impression on others of what a great treasure we have all around us if we only take the time to look.
