                                 for PrimeTime Birding in the Lower Rio Grande Valley!
                                                     Available from November-January
Dominated by the floodplain of the Rio Grande River, this world renowned birding region is unique in the United States thanks its extreme southerly locale: nearly at the same latitude as Key West, Florida! From the coastal prairie near the Gulf of Mexico, to dense, dry Tamaulipas scrub habitat, to tropical riparian forest and Sabal palms, and out to the arid western section around Falcon Dam that feels more like the Desert Southwest... each zone offers a special host of birds to dazzle and delight.
                                                       RATE: $1599/person**
Includes round-trip van transportation from the McAllen Airport, 8 hotel nights*, and guided field trips to hotspots including Laguna Atascosa NWR, Boca Chica Rd, Edinburgh Wetlands, Santa Ana NWR, Frontera Audubon, Bentsen-Rio Grande Valley SP, Anzalduas County Park, Estero Llano Grande SP, Salineno, and Falcon Dam SP.
     * Based on DOUBLE OCCUPANCY -- perfect for couples, pairs of
         traveling birding buddies, and making new friends!
