Program: Birding South Texas - Greg DuBois
Greg and Cathy DuBois retired in September of 2011 and have always had an interest in birds. Retirement has opened up new opportunities for travel and the chance to add exciting birding sites to their destination list. Photography has been an interest of Greg’s for many years and retirement and birding were two great reasons to rekindle this hobby.
South Texas is a favorite spot for birders. Tourism ads tout the Texas coast and Rio Grande Valley as two of the hottest birding areas in the U.S. Over 500 bird species have been documented in the region and the “Great Texas Coastal Birding Trail” helps you find all of the best places to bird. This program is a do it yourself tour of south Texas.
Please join us to find out why you should plan a trip to the region and what extraordinary sites await! All Will County Audubon Society meetings are free and open to the public.
