Shorebirds on Galveston Island Field Trip #1

April 7 @ 12:45 pm - 3:45 pm
  • This event has passed.

Reddish Egret at Bolivar FlatsGalveston Island has all the habitats associated with a barrier island – beach, uplands, fresh water ponds, brackish lagoons and wetlands. Join local birder Allen Hardee on this “birdy” trip as you learn to identify Black Skimmers, gulls, terns, sandpipers, plovers, herons, egrets, ibis, spoonbills, ducks and much more.

Last year this Sunday trip saw a Great Blue Heron catch, kill and swallow whole a full grown Clapper Rail. What an experience!

We think you’ll also enjoy our Shorebirds Identification Workshop offered earlier on Friday.
