Birdiest Festival in America

April 26 - April 30

Experience amazing spring migration along the Texas Gulf Coast in the busiest of U.S. flyways, with four-day pre- and post-trips; field trips to famous South Texas ranch and coastal hot spots; presentations and workshops; bird walks; and Jonathan Wood Raptor Project shows. Based at Corpus Christi’s South Texas Botanical Gardens & Nature Center, a popular opening reception with Happy Hour cash bar and genuine Texas BBQ dinner; Vendor Trade Show; artisan booths; and Saturday ‘Family Fun Day’ still are only part your Texas Coastal adventure!

Amazing KEYNOTE SPEAKER Tiffany Kersten spent 2021, against all odds, setting a new U.S. record for ‘The Big Year’—726 bird species sighted in 48 states in 12 months! From Mission, in the Texas Rio Grande Valley, this 35-year-old guide recovering from sexual assault, having lost her nature center job, drove 49,000 miles in a Chevy Spark, hopped 50 flights, finding her record-breaking Bat Falcon 30 minutes from home, December 18. Tiffany’s experience was Texas Monthly’s June cover story!

The 2022 Birdiest Festival in America had 239 registrants from 30 states, a 47-percent increase—and raised the number of bird species seen in its five-year history to 329!
