Past Years' Highlights


GTBC Header

Since the Great Texas Birding Classic started in April of 1997, team registration fees and sponsorship dollars have contributed to $1,027,000 donated directly to avian habitat conservation on the Texas coast. Going statewide in 2013 opened up the Birding Classic by offering more opportunities to participate, involving more teams, making conservation grants available throughout the state, and more!

Enjoy highlights from previous years and read all about teams who participated, who won, what species were seen, who our sponsors were, and more. To see each tournament category's top team totals by year, view the Historic Winning Totals Spreadsheet. Complete Winners Reports provided below.
