Jay Stormer will present The Birds and Refuges of the Lower Rio Grande Texas:
The birder visiting the Lower Rio Grande Valley for the first time may list a dozen or more life birds. This area is home to many tropical bird species found nowhere else in the United States as well as many migrants comprising a list of over 500 bird species. Nine refuges and parks each with unique features make up the “World Birding Center” stretching from the Gulf of Mexico shores 100 miles inland along the river. The scene varies from virtual wilderness and farmland to strip-mall lined freeways. A Mexican heritage overlaid by Florida-like “snow bird” trailer parks and condos produce an exotic cultural mix.
