Laredo Birding Festival
February 2, 2022 - February 5, 2022
With a rich and diverse river eco-system, Laredo is home to hundreds of species of local and migratory birds. Laredo is considered part of the “birdiest” corridor in North America. Our prized birds include the Morelet’s Seedeater, Scaled Quail, Gray Hawk, Audubon’s and Altamira Orioles, Green Parakeets, Muscovy Duck, Red-billed Pigeon, and Clay-colored Thrush, among many others. Laredo is the only place in the U.S. to have boasted four species of kingfisher: the Ringed, Belted, Green and Amazon.
Each day, birders will have a chance to select from a variety of full-day field trips to select public green spaces, private ranchland, riverfront, creek systems, and nature trails. Led by professional field guides and members of our local Monte Mucho Audubon Society, birders will have an opportunity to deepen their avian knowledge of South Texas. The festival also includes evening presentations.
