Texas High Island Migration
April 20 - April 26, 2013


Take advantage of this affordable Audubon tour to the upper Texas coast and experience one of the finest and best-known spectacles of spring songbird migration in North America. Every spring, millions of birds migrate north from the American Tropics to the forests of the eastern United States. This tour is designed to focus on spring migration along the upper Texas coast. Most nights will be spent near High Island, where isolated groves of live oaks and other trees may attract large numbers of migrants in a spectacular fallout.
Program Highlights 
  • The Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge, which is famous for observing secretive marsh-dwelling birds and marsh animals;
  • An early morning visit to Jones State Forest to look for the endangered Red-cockaded Woodpecker;
  • A visit to the renowned Bolivar Flats and nearby Rollover Pass, two of the best Gulf shoreline birding locales in Texas; and
  • Stops at various flooded rice fields to see the shorebirds in glorious spring plumage.

The Texas coast is the perfect place to get a feel for migration, and High Island is the best migrant arrival site on the entire coast.
