Annual Galveston Big Day Birding Adventure

April 20 @ 6:30 am - 3:00 pm
  • This event has passed.

Have you ever wondered what the Texas Birding Classic, Birdathon and birding competitions are all about? Here’s your chance to have that experience! Local birders will lead you to their best, secret Galveston County birding locations where participants will spot, listen, locate, describe, identify, verify, agree, record, and count as many feathered species as possible within an 8-hour period. The goal of the group will be to find more bird species than the previous high number for this trip, which was 135. Since this tour will be fast, fun birding, with the priority of everyone seeing the most species possible, there will be no time for photography.

Targets: Anything feathered and wild.

Bring water, snacks, lunch
