This is Passport to Texas

We love seeing wildlife in its natural environment… marveling at the beauty of migrating bird species, or the majesty of a 10-point buck grazing in the mist. We feel nostalgic hearing the sweet call of the bobwhite quail, and joyful watching the antics of otters splashing in rivers. Yet when wildlife inundates our urban environs, we’re not as thrilled. The July issue of TPW magazine is all about wildlife—wherever it’s found. Editor, Louie Bond.

42—This month we’re going to talk about wildlife. We’ll take a look at quail, whose populations are declining. We’ll take a look at bumblebees—those cute little furry creatures that flit from flower to flower. They’re not only adorable—they’re important to our crops. And out local bug expert, Michael Warriner, takes a long hard a look at bumblebees. We’ll also take a look at urban wildlife problems. Do you have too many deer in your yard? Raccoons in the trashcan? Maybe feral hogs tearing up your property? We’ll take a look at these problems and some possible solutions and look at how different communities are handling this problem. So, if you enjoy wildlife the way we do, please take a look at the July issue and see what’s new with wildlife.

Thanks Louie.
