Toast to Travel, Life Birds, and Fun from 30 December 2017 -- 7 January 2018 :
                                                                Celebrate New Year's 2018 
                                                     in the Lower Rio Grande Valley!
Dominated by the floodplain of the Rio Grande River, this world renowned birding region is unique in the United States thanks its extreme southerly locale: nearly at the same latitude as Key West, Florida! From the coastal prairie near the Gulf of Mexico, to dense, dry Tamaulipas scrub habitat, to tropical riparian forest and Sabal palms, and out to the arid western section around Falcon Dam that feels more like the Desert Southwest... each zone offers a special host of birds to dazzle and delight.
