World Birding Center Bird Walks

April 23 @ 8:30 am - 10:30 am CST

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 8:30am on Sunday, Wednesday and Saturday, repeating until May 28, 2017

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!

Join us on unforgettable avian adventure. With over 300 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 walks 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 bird walk is sure to be an amazing time. If it’s too hot, and trail conditions permit it, we can bird from a quiet electric tram!

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 Rose-throated Becard, White-throated Thrush, and Crimson-collared Grosbeak.

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.
