Our birding program leaves the Park itself in a 15-passenger van, with a birding guide, a driver, and the pleasure of birding the Valley.

The site of the annual Rio Grande Valley Birding Festival for 24 years, Harlingen has a lot to offer birders with a World Birding Center (Harlingen Thicket), Dixieland Park (the local reservoir), Tiocano Lake, City Lake, La Feria Nature Center, and the former-landfill-turned-birdy hotspot Hugh Ramsey Park with feeders and revegetated gardens maintained by the local Arroyo Colorado Audubon Society, and more.  Time will be our only limit.  And South Padre Island!  Wow!  So much to see...

Please bring your own binoculars, snacks, sack lunch, field guides and other birding gear.   Designed for birders of all levels, this trip will be easily completed by the average person.  Remember that times are approximate although every effort will be made to be on time.

Your spot is not assured until you have paid.  We are limited to ten participants, $25 per person, payable with credit card only, and no snacks or lunch provided.

Meet in the Parking Lot at Estero.  The van will leave at 7am.  This trip has always been easy fun over the years!
