Nesting Birds of the Southern Border
Roland H. Wauer
Borderland Birds includes almost 100 birds that I have encountered along the southern border from Arizona to the Gulf. Many are “specialty birds, species that cannot be found elsewhere in the U.S. Examples include chachalaca, red-billed pigeon, hook-billed kite, aplomado falcon, ferruginous pygmy-owl, elegant trogon, blue-throated and lucifer hummingbirds, Mexican and green jays, Audubon’s and Altamira orioles, pyrrhuloxia, varied bunting, and Colima and rufous-capped warblers. All of the birds are illustrated with photographs by Greg Lasley, Kelly Bryan, Bob Behrstock, and Martin Reid.
