Birdiest Festival in America

April 21 - April 25


Corpus Christi’s BIRDIEST FESTIVAL IN AMERICA has earned its wings, welcoming keynote speaker, renown author, and illustrator of The Sibley Guide to Birds, David Allen Sibley, presenting “The Art of Identification,” 7 pm, Friday, April 23, included in $35 basic festival registration, or separate ticketing!

Based at South Texas Botanical Gardens & Nature Center, before cancellation, the 2020 festival had doubled its 2019 registration!

Now larger and longer, 2021 brings birders to the Texas Gulf Coast to experience amazing spring migration in perhaps the busiest flyway in the country, featuring 15 different field trips to famous South Texas ranch and coastal hot spots, one led by Sibley himself!  Eight different presentations and workshops; three bird walks; nine Jonathan Wood Raptor Project shows also are offered.

An opening reception with Happy Hour cash bar and Texas BBQ dinner; Vendor Trade Show; artisan booths; and Saturday Family Fun Day round out your Texas Coastal adventure—plus a brand new four-day RIO GRANDE VALLEY pre-trip, April 17-20, limited to eight participants!
