Texas’ Birdwatching Offers Diversity

According to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, the state of Texas has the greatest number of bird species found here over any other state.  Texas and Arizona each have an equally diverse hummingbird population.  So, what explains the diversity of our states bird population?  This can be explained by a wide variety of factors including the diverse habitat found throughout the state, our geography, and our location.

All this is very good news for the hummingbird enthusiast.  No matter where you live within the state, every individual will have the opportunity to enjoy at least two species of hummingbirds within their own county.  Some regions of the state will have 16 different species of hummingbirds found there.

Spring is when you will have the greatest opportunity to view the vast majority of these hummingbird species, but there are a few hummingbird species which are known to spend the winter in Texas.  The most common to do this are the Rufous and the Black-chinned hummingbirds.  It is rare but you will also occasionally find Allen’s, Anna’s, Calliope, Costa’s, Broad-tailed and Buff-bellied hummingbirds.
