This guided bus tour will travel north of Port Aransas to discover the birds of Lamar Peninsula. The tour will visit two sites on the Great Texas Coastal Birding Trail, including Goose Island State Park, home of the Big Tree, estimated to be around 1,000 years old and one of the largest live oak trees in Texas and the U.S.

 Enjoy the scenic beauty of the bay and the wind-sculpted oaks that fringe the shore while observing the large numbers of waterfowl that are found here. Birds often seen on this tour include Fulvous Whistling-Ducks, both night herons, and Sandhill Cranes and Whooping Cranes that make Lamar Peninsula their over-wintering ground.

 Mikael Behrens has been an avid birder and amateur naturalist since the early 1990s. He lives in Austin but is originally from Port Aransas and returns there often to help out with bird counts, lead walks, and to bird for fun. He contributes to several citizen science projects including eBird, iNaturalist, Christmas Bird Counts, and he’s always on the Port Aransas Spoonbills team for the Great Texas Birding Classic.

Snacks and drinks will be provided.
