Species not yet documented for Texas:
Birders unfamiliar to Texas may be forgiven if they assume
that any common U.S. species that is not on the Review List does
not require documentation (i.e. occurs regularly in Texas) -
especially if it is found nearby or is a strong migrant. Some
very common species are extremely rare or do not occur in Texas
- for example, there is only one State record of Black-capped
Chickadee (a specimen from the previous century). A careful
analysis of the main list would reveal a few perhaps unexpected
omissions, but to save you the trouble (and to encourage documentation)
the results of such an analysis are presented here.
By its very nature this list is subjective; we welcome thoughtful suggestions concerning the inclusion of other species - please email the webmaster - thank you.
