King Ranch Laureles Division Field Trip

This event is no longer on sale.

Wednesday April 24

7:30 AM  –  12:00 PM

The Laureles Division of the King Ranch

Every birder needs to visit the storied King Ranch at least once in their lifetime. The 4 Divisions of the ranch span over 825,000 acres, an area larger than Rhode Island. Named as a site on the Great Texas Coastal Birding Trail and as a Globally Important Bird Area by the American Bird Conservancy, the ranch boasts a bird list of 363 species.

We have field trips planned to King Ranch each day, led by Tom Langschied, coordinator of the ranch's Nature Tour Program. No one knows the ranch and its birds better than Tom and he invariably delivers you to its most special species.

Half-day trips to the Laureles Division of King Ranch will be Wednesday,  April 24. This is the nearby northern region of the ranch and will explore a variety of coastal habitats.  Laureles contains one of Texas' largest fresh water marshes. We should have a bonanza of sparrows and hawks on its prairies- recent April trips have counted 10,000+ hawks. This trip will not look for Ferruginous Pygmy-Owl, Tropical Parula and some of King Ranch's other unique birds which are only found in the Norias Division of the ranch.
