Late Spring Migration Workshop May 3rd, 2014


The first and second week of May tend to be the most productive weeks in terms of diversity and numbers of migrants on the Upper Texas Coast. This time of year also brings many late season migrants and increased chances for uncommon migrants like Cape May Warbler and Black-billed Cuckoo. It is also prime time for migrants that are more challenging to identify among the flurry of warblers, buntings, and tanagers. This workshop will focus on trickier groups like flycatchers and thrushes and will get you ready to take advantage of the final big spring push of migrants. In addition, the workshop will explore freshwater and grassland shorebird habitats in search of Hudsonian Godwits and Buff-breasted Sandpiper, plus other shorebirds. The workshop will start in Houston and head east towards Anahuac NWR in search of flooded rice fields, before continuing to migrant hotspots in the High Island area and along Bolivar Peninsula. Of course migration is dependent on weather and we will leave some flexibility in the itinerary to take advantage of the best conditions. This is an all day trip, please bring plenty of water, food, and sunscreen.
