17th Annual Balcones Songbird Festival
April 21-23, 2017
The Balcones Songbird Festival is committed to providing small group focus tours, with leaders of distinction that will provide you with a quality and fun-filled experience. This leads to sell-out tours very quickly, so please plan accordingly. Looking forward to seeing you at the Refuge!
SUMMARY OF EVENTS - See REGISTRATION for details
THANKS to our Partners & Donors
Our leaders are affiliated with these birding organizations that have graciously partnered with us.
All tours (unless otherwise noted) leave by van from the Refuge Headquarters. Please check-in with the REGISTRATION DESK at least 15 minutes before your 1st scheduled tour.
Nature tours will follow the birds, so please come prepared to get off the beaten trail when needed. Closed-toe shoes and long pants are recommended on our walks, due to primitive trail conditions. Be sure to bring your sunscreen and hats!

Due to the rough terrain, Nature Tours are not recommended for children.
