I grew up near Fort Worth. As an adolescent, I had little appreciation for Texas, and I vowed that, other than visiting my parents, I would have no reason to return. I was not a birder back then. In my adult years, when I started enjoying nature, my trips to Texas took on new meaning. Harris’s Sparrows in winter and Scissor-tailed Flycatchers in summer inspired me to return again and again. I soon discovered the Texas Hill Country, a region of extraordinary natural beauty and home to two very special endangered species: the Golden-cheeked Warbler and Black-capped Vireo. After many subsequent visits, we are excited to share with you some world-class birding at the peak of nesting season in the most beautiful corner of the Lone Star State. Join us in the Hill Country this spring, and you too will want to return!
