Speaker Ben Horstmann serves as the regional Interpretive Specialist for South Texas State Parks. His addiction to birding was a direct result of moving here and birding with the park staff and volunteers at the parks. His favorite pastime is birding in the parks and natural places of Texas.
Take a birder’s tour of the State Parks of South Texas with an avid birder who visits them n a regular basis. The tour will go through each park identifying the birds you can find there in different seasons, and tell you how you can take as actual birding tour with our interpreters or volunteers in several of the parks. No need for binoculars for this tour but ready to take notes about some of the best birding spots in Texas!
