Annual Matagorda Bay Birdfest
March 5, 2024 – April 7, 2024
Matagorda Bay Birdfest is a truly exceptional event and bird celebration. In 2024, there will be expert-guided tours by boat, kayak, and land including tours to Powderhorn Ranch and to the Nature Conservancy’s Mad Island Marsh.
The Matagorda County CBC has been #1 in the bird species count for the Audubon Christmas bird count in 26 of the last 30 years! It is the undiscovered jewel of mid-coast Texas! Our extensive panel of speakers will include many outstanding professionals including speakers from Audubon, Smithsonian, and International Crane Foundation.
Don’t miss the Keynote dinner at the Palacios Pavilion overlooking beautiful Matagorda Bay or the one-of-a-kind Bird Parade along the waterfront that is both fun and fabulous!
