Blessed with a rich and diverse river eco-system, Laredo is home to hundreds of species of local and migratory birds, which include prized finds such as: White-collared Seedeater, Scaled Quail, Grey Hawk, Audubon’s and Altamira Orioles, Brown Jay, Green Parakeets, Muscovy Duck, Red-billed Pigeon and Clay-colored Thrush.
During this 4-day festival, birders will have a chance to select from a variety of full-day scenic trips. Escorted by professional field guides and members of our local Monte Mucho Audubon Society, birders will have an opportunity to explore areas along Laredo’s river front, creek systems, nature trails and private ranchland.
Laredo is said to be the only place in the U.S. to have boasted four species of Kingfisher: the Ringed, Belted, Green and Amazon. Keep birding the border regions to find out how true that statement is.
