South Texas Outdoor HOP

April 3 - April 9

Location: Mission, Texas

South Texas is rich with grasslands, lakes, and rivers, making this a prime area for several migrating animal species.

Although birds are the highest-profile migratory species in South Texas, which makes this area a mecca for bird watchers, there are also javelinas, bobcats, ocelots, sea turtles, bats and butterflies migrating through Texas and you will see some on the tours.

 

In April, it reaches a fever pitch with the most significant numbers and various migrating birds. Some of the well-known birds that will arrive are Hummingbirds, Warblers, Swallows, Buntings, Cuckoos, Hawks, Orioles, Thrushes, Flycatchers, Woodpeckers, the Yellow-headed Blackbird, Green Jays and Waterfowl, to name a few.

Enjoy nature-guided tours, walking trails and learn what animals live and migrate through Texas.

Several of the tours, including lunch, will be on South Padre Island so, grab your binoculars and a camera for those breathtaking nature shots!
