|The HAS High Island Birder's House|
This is a small
house directly opposite the entrance to Houston Audubon Society’s
Boy Scout Woods, set in a bird garden with feeders.
Our goal is to promote birding to nature enthusiasts, introduce North
American birders to the idea of world birding, and promote bird
conservation to everyone. At this house Tropical Birding tours guides are present to provide
help to birders visiting High Island and to act as a hub of activity
during spring migration. During the peak season, there will be
up-to-the-minute information available for birding in the region,
complete with maps and personalized help. As well as the latest bird
news for rarity chasers, we’ll have some of our own expert guides
there to help less experienced birders get a handle on the many species
passing through the area, or to even learn what birding is about.
There will be free guided migration walks run by Tropical Birding and
Birding America in partnership with Houston Audubon Society. If you are having trouble with some tough shorebirds,
join one of our walks down at Houston Audubon’s Bolivar Flats
The bird gardens are newly planted, and we are sure the
birds will come thick and fast during our first full spring season in
the area. Everyone is welcome regardless of birding experience; feel
free to drop in, have a coffee, relax in the lounge, and use any of the
books we have in the library.
Books, T-shirts, patches, and much more are for sale directly across
the road from the Houston Audubon Society at the entrance to Boy Scout
Woods. The Houston Audubon Society volunteers work tirelessly to
provide these facilities and maintain this outstanding reserve, so
please support them however you can.
