Texas treasures 4

During the Rio Grande Valley Birding Festival, birders can bid on items in a silent auction. The tempting selection can include optics, stays at bed & breakfasts, guided outings and various books.

This year's silent auction, held Nov. 5-8, offered a collection of books -- autographed by the authors -- from Houghton Mifflin. Part of the collection's appeal stemmed from the predominant author, Kenn Kaufman, a prolific author who also contributes to WildBird's Advisory Board.

After making the winning bid, I came home with a heavy suitcase full of titles that'll go to the local Audubon chapter. I'm pleased to provide the various field guides, including the new fifth edition of the Peterson guide.
