Birds of North-central Texas

This site is intended to act as a clearinghouse for bird sightings with associated photo images, area review species, and checklist information for North-Central Texas birds.

This site owes a debt of gratitude to Warren Pulich and his 1988 publication "The Birds of North-Central Texas." His historical research into lost specimens and his dedication to gathering accurate data allowed the groundwork on which to build a database. Without his tireless work, much of what we currently know about the area's birds would be lost.
