Birding with Texas A&M AgriLife Extension
The goal of Birding with Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service is to connect people to the land through the experience of birding, thus fostering an interest in conservation of natural resources. Our programs including learning to bird for youth and adults, backyard bird habitat management, and birding experiences such as Learn to Bird and Birding the Border.
A program for new and beginning birders to take their skills to the next level! Join us to learn everything you need to get started birding, with lessons led by a professional guide, great volunteers, and AgriLife Extension faculty. 2021 dates and locations will be announced soon!
This is a unique Texas birding experience that connects birders with landowners! At Birding the Border, participants get access to private ranches and other restricted sites as we search for a wide variety of species. Join us April 29 – May 2, 2021!
A new Birding with Extension experience just for youth! We will travel throughout southwest Texas to a wide variety of ecosystems and look for diverse species from colima warblers to Morelet’s seedeater to black-capped vireo, and along the way learn about Texas’ ecology, history, and culture.
A free, online workshop for Texas science and ag teachers grades 7-12 to learn about bird identification, sustainable agriculture, and habitat management, and how these relate to one another. Stay tuned for 2021 dates and details!
Most Wednesday mornings, we post an informal discussion on our social media about a range of bird-related topics. You can find all the videos at the above link!
Due to COVID-19, we had to cancel Birding the Border 2020. We were so bummed, but we still connected birders with landowners, scientists, and conservationists – click the logo to access the archived Virtual Birding Seminars!
