Green Jay Texas, also known as the Lone Star State,  has long been recognised as America's number one birding State with over 620 species recorded there and 130 are shown in this talk. 

Many of the colourful species are from Mexico and are not found elsewhere in North America.   

As well as the more common species this talk shows close up shots of the more unusual ones such as Vermilion Flycatcher, Summer Tanager, Painted Bunting, Green Jay, Pyrrhuloxia, Curve-billed Thrasher, Long-billed Thrasher, Great Kiskadee, Harris's Hawk, Crested Caracara, Chachalaca and many more.

With an area of nearly 270,000 square miles, Texas is the second largest State and has a very varied terrain including mountains, hill country, desert brushland, plains, pineywoods, the Gulf coast and the famous Rio Grande Valley.
The Rio Grande Valley, in the southwest corner of Texas, is separated from Mexico by the Rio Grande River.  As well as being well known for it's resident birds it is also notorious for the migrants that arrive from across the Gulf of Mexico on the way north to their breeding grounds.
