For this hike my son and his best friend came along and they were glad they did. We had a great time but it should be noted that the best part of the trail system is closed but you can get to it from another trail and it is well worth it. The waterfalls were awesome and there was enough hills to make it just hard enough for the boys to stay occupied. The park was very busy but it was labor day so it is to be expected. I only can hope that the Corp repairs the bridges and reopens the trail as the park is just not complete without it! But all in all very worth it.

The Birds of North Central Texas is the culmination of a seven-year study by Warren M. Pulich, who set out to assess and evaluate the avifauna within the 25,000-square-mile area rather than to produce a field guide. With the aid of trusted observers, the author has compiled information on arrival and departure dates and peak numbers during migration for approximately 400 species.

Texas' large variety of bird species is due to the convergence of four vegetation zones in the north central region of the state. In effect, species predominating in the moister eastern portions of the region mingle with species inhabiting the mesquite and cacti of the dry western reaches of the study area. The presence of the Dallas–Fort Worth metroplex and its numerous birders and visitors has ensured volumes of data for sorting and study.

Ornithology students, visiting naturalists, environmentalists, and dedicated birders will find this book a valuable aid to understanding more clearly the status of birds in north central Texas.
