Join Manomet Shorebird Biologist Sam Wolfe and experience peak spring migration on the upper Texas coast! This trip will include stops at High Island, Bolivar Peninsula, and Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge. With the exceptional diversity of shorebirds, songbirds, and wading birds in the area, participants will rack up their year list quickly on this adventure.

This trip will kick off on Saturday afternoon at Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge. Here, participants will meet up with shorebird scientists from Manomet who have been conducting research on this refuge and the surrounding agricultural fields. If the scientists know about any fields outside of the refuge that have large numbers or uncommon species of shorebirds, the group will make a quick trip to view them. Then, we’ll take a driving tour of the refuge to look for birds like Fulvous Whistling Duck, Purple Gallinule, Boat-tailed Grackle, and King Rail. We may even see an alligator or two! The evening will culminate with the group watching hundreds of shorebirds flying overhead as they head to their evening roost. The total number of species reported on eBird at this location in April is 301.
