Houston has been called “an urban birder’s paradise.” Most people are amazed to learn that they can see over a hundred species of beautiful birds in our city parks, neighborhoods and even perched among the buildings of our skyline. Our region lies within the flyway for birds that migrate from Central America, South America and Canada. Houston’s mild fall brings an opportunity to get outside and scout for peregrine falcons, American robins, red-tailed hawks, black-bellied whistling ducks, redhead ducks and more. Learn to identify birds and become familiar with the many birds that can be seen in our urban landscape. This course also includes a guided field trip to one or more urban birding hot spots, led by instructor Glenn Olsen.
