Birding 101 - May 11 2019 - 8:30am to 11:30am

Caddo Mounds State Historic Site invites the public to an early Saturday morning Bird Watching program. Bird watching, aka "Birding", is one of the fastest growing hobbies in the nation and Caddo Mounds will be hosting both a classroom session and walk around its wooded and wet land areas. Come join us; spring is the best time for hearing bird song and seeing a bird?s colorful plumage.

East Texas, with 353 species, is a great place to bird due to the diversity of habitats in the region. Dr. Brent Burt, Professor of Biology at SFASU, will present a brief presentation on the basics of bird identification and then lead a birding foray into the diversity of habitats represented at Caddo Mounds.

We expect to see and hear 30-plus species. Don?t forget to bring your binoculars (if you have them), sunscreen and insect spray.

The program is free, but regular site entry fees apply.

Information: 936.858.3218, or caddo-mounds@thc.state.tx.us.
