Did anyone else notice the mockingbirds all over the place this morning?
Usually we see one or two during a tour, but today we saw at least a dozen!
They were calling and chasing each other- must be springtime!
Our bird and habitat tours will continue now through March, every Thursday,
Friday, and Saturday. There is LIMITED SEATING, so please call to make sure
your seat is saved.

If interested in making a reservation for one of our bird tours or for more
information, call the Visitor Center at (956) 748-3607 ex. 111, or get more
