Drawing from her experience as a former park ranger and lifelong nature enthusiast, Bristol explores 90 birding locations that are open to the public in Texas.

The book, Parking Lot Birding, is divided by geography, with each of the nine sections centered on a defined ecoregion in Texas. Locational accounts end with a “Feather Fact” that provides interesting and relevant details about birds in a particular region.


Jennifer Bristol is the former director of Texas Children in Nature program of the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department. The 2018 and 2019 recipient of the Most Valuable Birder Award in the Great Texas Birding Classic, she has contributed many articles to Texas Parks & Wildlife Magazine and other publications.
