Exploring Nature with Jerry Hall: Birding festival set for Nov. 4

Looking at recent bird reports from around the state, I was impressed with sightings from the Rio Grande Valley area, including a golden-winged warbler in Port Aransas, a collared plover near Mission and a northern beardless tyrannulet at Santa Ana National Wildlife Refuge.
If you’d like to search for these neat birds, and many others, you’ll have a golden opportunity at the 22nd Annual Rio Grande Valley Birding Festival scheduled for Nov. 4 through Nov. 8 in Harlingen.
