Paul Davis owns 1,500 acres in the Hill Country of Texas that he manages, not for cattle, but as habitat for warblers and vireos. He’s preserving stands of native juniper. He says: “We have two birds down there that are very, very localized. The Golden-cheeked Warbler and the Black-capped Vireo. That’s what the Hill Country’s famous for – those two birds. The main thing I can do is not chop down any more juniper. I can’t say that I’m doing anything; it’s that I’m not doing anything.”
