North America



Altamira Oriole

For a first birdwatching trip to the USA it would be difficult to beat Texas in spring. 

Texas, the largest of the  United States, straddles both the east and west with a substantial area south of the Mexican border. Moist woodlands in the east gradually give way to more arid stony desert in the west, bordered by the magnificent Rio Grande. In addition to a fabulous array of resident species including such specialities as Greater Roadrunner and Green Jay, April sees the massed arrival of travellers from the South including multitudes of warblers, hummingbirds, flycatchers, orioles and raptors to name a few. This two week tour takes a leisurely look at some of the most exciting parts of Texas, following the Gulf coast right down to Mexico, then up to the beautiful Edwards Plateau, home of birds and millions of bats.
