You don't have to be an experienced birder to enjoy these field trips! As your guide, I will be spotting and identifying the birds that we see, and making sure that you have as much time as you like to enjoy watching them, learning about them, and photographing them. The trips are fun and relaxing, and a great way to enjoy nature with friends and family.

Tour participants will ride in air-conditioned comfort in a passenger van, where they will be able to get close views of the birds without doing a lot of hiking. These field trips are perfect for those who want to stay out of the weather but still want to enjoy nature, and for those with limited mobility.

Details on the meeting location will be provided with your registration confirmation. Parking is free unless otherwise noted.

Private tours to these and other locations are also available upon arrangement, including groups or families with younger children. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Kristine Rivers at kristine@birdingforfun.com or 832-372-8236.

Think it's too hot in June to enjoy nature? Think again! We'll enjoy a refreshing ride on the Galveston Ferry across to Bolivar Peninsula, and then take you on a guided tour of Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge in air-conditioned comfort. You'll get the opportunity to see and photograph Purple Gallinules, Least Bitterns, Fulvous Whistling-Ducks, Black-necked Stilts, and many other species up close, without doing a lot of hiking! We're also likely to see other wildlife, including Atlantic Bottle-nosed Dolphins, American Alligators, and Nutria.

We'll take a break for lunch at a local restaurant mid-day (cost of lunch not included.) You may also want to bring snacks and drinks.
