In the spring of 2004, the TOS Executive Board decided to publish the unabridged seasonal reports prepared for North American Birds magazine. Each issue of the magazine includes articles on rare bird trends, articles on specific rarities, such as first North American records, and a rare bird photo gallery. The “regions” used for the North American Birds magazine are biological regions in Texas. They don’t exactly match the TOS “regions”, but the information is still interesting and useful for those wanting to understand the distribution of birds in the state. For convenience, we have attempted to align the reports with the TOS regions.
