Patsy Inglet, local birding enthusiast, Texas Master Naturalist, and President of Bexar Audubon Society leads this online workshop to help you better know the birds relying on Texas’s coastal habitat in the winter. The shorebirds we see in Texas represent the ends of the earth—visitors from lands we may never see. And they stitch our planet together with their Olympian efforts—some crossing several continents on their journeys. That certainly makes them World Travelers. Many shorebirds spend the winter along the Texas Coast, and that makes them Winter Texans. Some of the wintering shorebirds do not come inland. That gives all Texas birders a great excuse to go to the Gulf Coast to see the shorebirds that winter there, and it helps if we study before we go.
Whether you are planning a trip to the coast soon, or simply hoping to expand your birding knowledge, you will learn key identification points 14 species of shorebirds commonly seen on the Texas Coast. Patsy’s presentations always entertain while building birding confidence in participants!
