Dennis - 

The best Florida bird book is "A Birder's Guide to Florida" by Bill Pranty.
It not only tells you which area to find specific birds, but which section
of a park or wildlife area is the best.  The directions are detailed and
very accurate.  The book was updated in 2005 and is available from ABA.

In Texas, if you are planning to bird the Lower Rio Grande Valley, go to
Google and enter "Harlingen birding".  The city of Harlingen will send you a
lot of birding information as well as a terrific map of the entire LRGV
area, what places to bird, what birds to find there, and good directions.

Also, for Texas in general, you can get "Birding Texas", by Roland H. Wauer
& Mark A. Elwonger.  My copy was published in 1998 and I don't know if there
is a later version. I think you can get it on Amazon.

Hope this helps.

many - perhaps all - of us would find life incomplete, indeed almost
intolerable without the birds" ~~ Roger Tory Peterson

Subject: Help with finding Florida and Texas bird finding books

We are considering a winter trip to either Florida
or Texas and would like some recommendations for books that would help
us find birds--something similar to "Birds of the St. Louis Area and
where and when to find them."

Thanks,

Dennis Jacobsen
