All ages and skill-levels are welcome on this two-hour tour of the park, finding as many species of birds as possible, especially the 30 that are termed Valley Specialties. How about from an air-conditioned van?!

Join us on unforgettable avian adventure. With over 350 species of birds identified within our park and many of the Valley specialty birds you just can't see outside of the Rio Grande Valley, our guided bird tours are a must for everyone. Whether you are new to birding and ready to learn your new outdoor obsession or if you are a seasoned and traveled expert with years of experience, this birding tour is sure to be an amazing time. 

From our famous birding deck that has a record of 115 bird species in a day from one spot overlooking the beautiful wetlands, to the Tropical Area that has Green Jays, Great Kiskadees, Clay-colored Thrushes and has attracted rarities like the Elegant Trogon, Rose-throated Becard, White-throated Thrush, and Crimson-collared Grosbeak. 

With the summer heat we've been doing the tour from an air-conditioned van for our Butterfly/Dragonfly Tours, which has been very popular!   Now we'll experiment with it for the Birding Tours!   Of course, should there be muddy trails or too many people we will not be taking the van, but there usually isn't too many people during the summer months.  And as a sidenote, there are about half as many park bird species in the summer as there are in the winter.

Free with park admission ($5 for adults, children free), all ages and all skill levels, no pets please. Family-friendly. Meet on the deck just outside the Visitor Center Park Store.
