At the mic: Sebastian Casares is a 13-year-old birder from Texas.

Every year I look forward to attending the Rio Grande Valley Birding Festival, aka RGVBF! There are Green Jays, Great Kiskadees, Red-crowned Parrots, Plain Chachalacas, and so many Rio Grande Valley specialty birds to add to your life list. Did I mention the awesome birding trips and guest speakers they have?
Well, I would like to tell you about a special event just for families. You are invited to attend the 23rd RGVBF American Birding Association Family Bird Walk on Saturday, November 5, 2016 from 8:30-11:00am at the Harlingen Municipal Auditorium. There is no cost and no registration needed. The walk is open to all ages and experience levels, so bring your birding friends, too–they will thank you!
Last year I had fun co-leading the 22nd RGVBF ABA Family Bird Walk with Liz Gordon. During our walk we saw a Red-crowned Parrot perched on a tree so close up. There were plenty of Tropical Kingbirds and Couch’s Kingbirds and lots more. This is the COOLEST bird walk ever! So if you need any new lifers or any first-of-season Rio Grande Valley birds, come join us. We will be happy to add some to your list!
You have to go! The RGV birds are calling you to come over!
See you all at the 23rd RGVBF ABA Family Bird Walk!
Happy Birding,
