The Norias Division of the King Ranch

Every birder needs to visit the storied King Ranch at least once in their lifetime. The four 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.  Over the years, the ranch has also hosted a large number of rare birds including Double-striped Thick-knee, Eurasian Wigeon, Masked Duck, Aplomado Falcon, and Garganey.


The Norias Division has vast tracts of habitat that are home to a variety of South Texas specialty birds, including Ferruginous Pygmy-Owl, Tropical Parula, Northern Beardless-Tyrannulet, Audubon’s Oriole, Botteri’s Sparrow, Green Jay, White-tailed Hawk, Olive Sparrow, and much more. This has been the most popular field trip and sells out very quickly.  This full-day of birding comes with lunch, vegetarian available.
