PRESENTATION: Birds of Nueces County- A Historical Checklist

Nueces County, Texas, home of Corpus Christi, is reckoned to have recorded the highest number of bird species, 464, in any county in the U.S., outside of a few in coastal California.

Mel Cooksey has long been a chief documenter of bird life here, as well as one of our most expert birders. His presentation will examine the ornithological history of Nueces County, sharing our most interesting sightings, from the ridiculous (Yellow-legged Gull!) to the sublime (Slate-throated Redstart!) to the bizarre (emaciated remains of a Stejneger's Petrel!).

If you're a lister, as are so many of us, or a birder who loves the thrill of discovering rarities, come hear about our region's historical diversity from its expert.
