Get Out Birding
Texas Parks & Wildlife, April 2016
Whether in our own backyard or at a state park, the beauty, behavior and songs of birds inspire us to don binoculars for a closer look. This spring, the Great Texas Birding Classic is celebrating its 20th year, providing an annual outlet for our birding fever. From April 15 until May 15, hundreds of birders across Texas will venture out in a competitive search to record the highest number of observations in a multitude of categories.
