Spring in east Texas – High Island and its warbler migrant fallout is so much different than birding west Texas. High Island will be a focus as will be Houston urban hot spots, Galveston Bay and the Upper Texas Coast, Big thicket National Preserve, Bolivar Flats and the Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge. Along with up to 25 species of warblers which can be seen on this field trip, other possibilities will be Red-headed Woodpecker, Red-cockaded Woodpecker, Acadian Flycatcher, Great Crested Flycatcher, Scissor-tailed Flycatcher, Brown-headed Nuthatch, Brown Thrasher, Scarlet Tanager, Bachmann’s Sparrow, Nelson’s Sharp-tailed Sparrow and Common Grackle.
The field Trip starts at George Bush International Airport, Houston on Friday April 12, 2019, and concludes with a late afternoon drop-off at the airport on Wednesday, April 17, 2019. Cost $2100.00 includes lodging, breakfast, ground transportation, preserve entrance fees and guiding. We will have a local birding guide during the field trip with 35 years experience of birding in east Texas.
