If there is one thing you should know about Laredo, it’s that it never stops surprising you. One of the things I love about our city so much is that it is filled with hidden gems that sometimes we forget are there. Take for example our very own Laredo Birding Festival. Did you know that Laredo is actually a top place for bird watching?

The city is home to hundreds of differed local and migratory birds, including Green Parakeets, Red-billed Pigeon, Scaled Quail, Morelet's Seedeater, Clay-Colored Thrush and Audubon’s just to name a few.

Bird watching, also known as birding, is a captivating and rewarding outdoor activity that brings enthusiasts closer to nature's avian wonders. Armed with binoculars, bird guides, and a keen eye, bird watchers embark on journeys to observe and identify various bird species in their natural habitats. The thrill lies in spotting elusive species, recognizing distinctive plumage patterns, and listening to the melodious songs that fill the air.

Bird watching offers not only a chance to connect with the beauty of birds but also an opportunity to appreciate the ecosystems they inhabit. Whether exploring forests, wetlands, or urban parks, bird watchers find solace in the peaceful pursuit of observing these winged creatures, fostering a deep appreciation for biodiversity and conservation efforts.

In comes Laredo! The Rio Grande International Study Center organizes the yearly Laredo Birding Festival. During this event, bird enthusiasts can choose from a variety of full-day scenic trips. Accompanied by experienced field guides and members of the local Monte Mucho Audubon Society, participants will have the opportunity to explore areas along Laredo's riverfront, creek systems, nature trails, and private ranchland in a relaxed and enjoyable setting.

Some of the top site’s visitors attend include The Chacon Creek Trail, Killam Ranch, Ranchito Road, Robert Muller Trails, Lake Casa Blanca, and Las Palmas Trail. This year, the festival will take place February 7-10 which will feature guest speakers, Robert M Peck, Christina Baal, and Cin-ty Lee.
