“a world-class birding destination”
The Rio Grande Valley has long been recognized as a world-class birding destination. And now with the creation of the World Birding Center, Texas Parks & Wildlife, U.S. Fish & Wildlife Services, and 9 valley communities, plan to expand awareness about this ecological treasure along the state’s southern border. The WBC is a network of nine sites dotted along 120 miles of river road from South Padre Island west to Roma, with habitats ranging from dry chaparral brush and verdant riverside thickets to freshwater marshes and coastal wetlands. Over 10,000 acres will be opened up, many for the first time, and all prime for viewing. The mission of the WBC is to protect native habitat while increasing the understanding and appreciation of the birds and wildlife. Our project is a global model for conservation and ecotourism development. With its headquarters located in Mission, the WBC is centered at Bentsen-Rio Grande Valley State Park. Birders can look for Green Jays, Altamira and Audubon’s Orioles, Hook-billed Kites, and flocks of Broad-winged Hawks in migration.
