Birding the Border
April 15 - April 18
At Birding the Border, participants have access to private ranches, some of which have never been birded, and other restricted-access sites. This is a unique Texas birding experience that includes tours led by professional guides, educational programs, a trade show, and so much more. On arrival, you will learn about the area and expected species while enjoying a Kickoff Social full of local flavor. The next three days are full of choices for you to bird on both public lands and private ranches in a variety of habitats, with seminars and a trade show during the heat of the day. We will travel through the Edwards Plateau, South Texas Brush, and unique habitats of the Del Rio area to find target species such as Golden-cheeked Warbler, Black-capped Vireo, Morelet’s Seedeater, Black-tailed Gnatcatcher, Elf Owl, and all three species of kingfisher.
