Please enjoy this short trailer for our new episode of OutBirding with Field Guides.
The Upper Texas Coast is world famous as a mecca for migration, and John Coons has been guiding Field Guides tours there for more than 30 years. Bret Whitney joined John and a small group of tour participants on the first tour Field Guides has operated in over a year, as they visited the Longleaf Pine forest for Red-cockaded Woodpeckers before heading to The Big Thicket for breeding Worm-eating, Swainson’s, Kentucky, Yellow-throated and Prairie warblers. The tour centered on the High Island-Bolivar Peninsula region, where the group racked up an impressive roster of migrant landbirds as well as marsh- and shorebirds. All agreed that it was great to be back on tour after a long hiatus, and the birding was properly rewarding!
