David Allen Sibley's ongoing efforts to understand the birds and trees of North America have led him to write and illustrate the celebrated Sibley Guides series. His inventive presentations include inspired lectures, illustration workshops, and nature walks.
The 2019 Festival featured guided field trips
to regional birding hot spots and private ranches,
Nature Photography, vendor trade-shows,
bird walks, The Raptor Project presentations,
and lots of South Texas hospitality. The inaugural year (2017) had 246 species, (2018) had 257 species, and
last year (2019) had 262 species,
showing why Corpus Christi was named the
"Birdiest City in North America"
