The Lower Rio Grande Valley is home to some of the country’s most storied birding spots: Santa Ana Wildlife Refuge, Bentsen-Rio Grande State Park, Estero Llano Grande, Sabal Palm Sanctuary. The birds are storied, too. We will start with wintering Whooping Cranes, then move on to the Valley specialties, birds like Green Jay, Pauraque, Altamira and Audubon’s Orioles, Plain Chachalaca, and many more. We’ll look for the less common birds as well, like Morelet’s Seedeater, Groove-billed Ani, Hook-billed Kite, and any rarities that are wintering in the area.
