UPDATE (03/20/20): Birding the Border has been cancelled due to COVID-19.
If you had registered, please check your email for more information. We are so sorry and hope you will join us in 2021!
Join us in Val Verde County, Texas, for a birding experience in the borderlands of southwest Texas! On Wednesday, 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.
*Schedule & locations are subject to change based upon landowners, birds, and weather.*
Your Birding the Border experience includes:
– Transportation to and from birding locations
– Birding with a professional guide and birding buddy
– Lunch in the field (some locations have extra-special lunches cooked hot instead of boxed lunches, and these have an extra charge)
– Social token
– Access to the trade show and Birding with Extension seminars
