Texas – Green Jay Delight & Whooping Crane Extension

Discover a slice of the tropics right here in the USA.

Want to enjoy a mild winter break, beautiful beaches, and bright tropical birds? Look no further than South Texas. Green Jays, Chachalacas, and Altamira Orioles await you on BRANT’s annual migration to our very own subtropical paradise. This tour is designed to find all of the regular South Texas specialty birds, and with a bit of luck we’ll happen across a rare Mexican bird species or two.

Still need to see that Whooping Crane? No problem. On the extension trip we’ll climb aboard the Skimmer, a boat that will get up close with these gentle giants.
