Learn about birding this fall

Texas hosts more species of birds than any other state in the U.S. and Brazoria County has more bird species than any area in North America. In our Beginning Birding class, participants will learn how to select binoculars and field guides, how to identify birds using field marks, songs and behavior; and the ways to get more involved. Class participants will go on field trips in the Pearland area, to practice their skills. Visit the outdoor recreation Web page to learn more.
