Bird-Watching for Beginners

With the diverse ecological systems that are represented in Texas, the state has become known for the unparalleled bird-watching opportunities that can be found in the different areas of the state. Because birding is easy for all ages to enjoy, it is a popular family activity that can lead to a lifelong hobby. Fort Bend County Libraries will present an introductory program about bird-watching in Texas, “Bird-Watching for Beginners,” on Saturday, April 22, from 2:00 to 4:00 pm, in the Meeting Room of the Missouri City Branch Library, 1530 Texas Parkway. Texas Master Naturalist Kristine Rivers will talk about the different types of birds that can be found in the Upper Texas Gulf Coast area. Learn how to identify different birds and how to distinguish between similar species. Rivers will also provide tips on selecting binoculars and field guides. Rivers began studying zoology at the University of Oklahoma. President of the Cradle of Texas Chapter of the Texas Master Naturalists, she is also a birding instructor for the City of Pearland and has been an area leader for the Brazoria-Columbia Bottomlands Christmas Bird Count for the past four years. She has maintained a lifelong interest in nature, and enjoys sharing her love of birds and wildlife with others. The program is free and open to the public.
