Why bird east Texas in the spring ? One reason is 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 area hot spots, Galveston Bay and the Upper Texas Coast, Big thicket National Preserve and Bolivar Flats. Up to 25 species of warblers 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.
