Texas is a large state and is situated on the Central Flyway - a major migratory route to and from South and Central America. It has about 615 species of birds on its state list and 54% of them are Nearctic-Neotropical migratory birds. Another reason why there is such a diversity of birds in Texas, is because it has several different habitat regions, from the Chihuahuan Desert in the west to the Piney Woods in the east and from the Panhandle Plains in the north to the Gulf Coast lowlands in the south.
 Notable Species
Colima Warbler in Big Bend National Park, the endangered Golden-cheeked Warbler and Black-capped Vireo in the Texas Hill Country, Green Jay and Plain Chachalaca in the Lower Rio Grande Valley and the endangered Whooping Cranes in the Aransas NWR on the Gulf Coast.
