The piney woods and marshes of northeastern Texas are home to a wide variety of birds not found in the Rio Grande Valley. We’ll explore the pine forests north of Houston before heading to the coast to visit the prairies, marshes, beaches, and coastal woodland that make this region special. The restricted range of the endangered Red-cockaded Woodpecker is found here; this colonial nesting woodpecker is a piney woods specialty.
