Perfect for those seeking superior birding in South Texas, our small-group field trips with expert guides to hotspots and super-premium destinations make this the best way to see a wide variety of specialty birds and migrants.
The Lower Rio Grande Valley has many great birding sites, and Weslaco is certainly one of the valley’s jewels, an ecological crossroad, where subtropical, Gulf Coast, Great Plains, and Chihuahuan desert climates come together. Birds from the Central and Mississippi flyways go right through the area on their way to and from Mexico, Central and South America. Weslaco in the Rio Grande Valley is the primary corridor in the spring for raptor and hawk migration.
Beginner and experienced enthusiasts will enjoy premium field trip locations and exclusive access to private properties. Specialty bird species include Plain and Piebald Chachalacas, Green Jays, hummingbirds, and a number of Mexican species of seasonal migrants which are regularly found here.
Registration opens November 1.
