The 2016 issue of Birder’s Guide to Travel features an article written by Cameron Carver called “Texas’s Sky Islands“. Within, Cameron details the birds that make three isolated west Texas mountain ranges special. Explicit directions and detailed maps of the Chisos, Davis, and Guadalupe mountains will help you find the region’s most-desired birds should you be fortunate enough to visit this beautiful corner of the United States. Of course, Colima Warbler is the region’s main draw for many visiting birders, but Lucifer Hummingbird, Montezuma Quail, and Varied Bunting are major lures, too.
