This year we are offering you choices in the hopes of encouraging you to give something back to birds and supporting GCBO's efforts to protect them. You choose how you want to help combat the threats to healthy bird populations by selecting a cause that speaks to your heart. Click here to begin making your choice.

Cypress Island Preserve

 

In November, we inducted a new property into our International Site Partner Network -TNC's Cypress Island Preserve, Louisiana. A beautiful wooded wetland located in our priority zone for Nearctic-Neotropical migrants, this is Site # 70 for the Network. In this photo, Cecilia Riley (GCBO) presents the Site Partner signage to Preserve Manager Kacy King. GCBO's Site Partner Network conserves over 9 million acres of critical stopover habitat for neotropical migrants. Check out our Site Partner Network map and visit one of these great sites along the Gulf Coast.

GCBO Wine and Cheese Benefit

Join us for a wine and cheese tasting benefitting Gulf Coast conservation at The Grape Taste Wine Bistro. Deborah Wassberg, owner of the Bistro has selected a very special wine and cheese pairing at an exclusive rate. There will also be many silent auction items and door prizes. $40 per adult. Tickets can be purchased at Gulf Coast Bird Observatory, 103 Hwy 332 West, Lake Jackson, TX 77566. Due to the limited capacity of the restaurant, reservations will be restricted to the first 60 people responding with payment. We encourage you to send an RSVP early! rcraft@gcbo.org or call 979-480-0999.

GoodSearch ToolBar

The GoodSearch ToolBar is a good deal for GCBO! When added to Internet Explorer or Firefox, each time you shop at more than 2,500 stores a percentage of your purchase will automatically be donated to GCBO at no cost to you. You may even save money as the toolbar provides coupons and deals as well! The toolbar also has a search box and each time you search the Internet, about a penny is donated to GCBO. Over time that can add up. You don't realize how many times you search for something on the internet until the $$ start adding up! Please install the toolbar today and pass this along to your friends.

Monthly Bird Banding at GCBO

We reached 3000 birds banded at GCBO! Research Associates Robert & Kay Lookingbill are shown above holding lucky number 3000, an adult male Orchard Oriole banded on July 16th. Join us from 8:00 until noon on Saturday, December 17th for our next monthly bird banding session. Winter residents have arrived. Come see who has returned to spend the winter with us! This is a great way to get kids excited about wildlife, but all ages are welcome.  See the map on our webpage for directions or find a map by going to Mapquest or GoogleMaps.  Note that some other navigators will not take you to the correct location.
