This is a great birding trip. Having birded off and on for over 50 years it is hard for me to add new birds to my life list but I added five to my list, Chihuahuan Raven, Green Parakeet and the Red-crowned, the Yellow-headed, and Red-lored parrots. Both of our guides were expert birders. This is a trip designed for both the novice and the well experienced birder.

This is an excellent tour to nationally recognized birding "hot-spots" and with exceptionally talented leaders. Even experienced birders can expect to see interesting and exciting "finds". I recommend this tour for the experienced and novice birders alike.

Excellent birding in the lower Rio Grande Valley led by outstanding birders. I saw many new life-list species and learned many new pointers on how to distinguish one species from another.

Had a great trip and saw many birds I had not seen before. I think if you go on this particular trip March would be a good month to go.
