“The discovery of a pine flycatcher, the first of this species ever found in the United States, has increased the awareness that Choke Canyon is indeed a special birding location,” Foster concluded.
The event will start with registration and a welcome coffee at 7 a.m., followed by professionally guided birding tours and educational workshop. A sandwich buffet will be served at noon. There will be more birding tours in the afternoon and another educational seminar. A barbecue dinner will be served at 5 p.m.
Cost of the festival is $35 per person which includes park admission, all meals, professional guides and educational programs.
The birding festival is sponsored by the Three Rivers Chamber of Commerce, Texas Parks and Wildlife, City of Three Rivers and the Texas Department of Agriculture Extension.
