"Bordertown" Port Brownsville by kyoub

Port Brownsville Travel Guide: 5 reviews and 10 photos

Migration

During the fall and spring migrations, the hundreds of species of birds make Brownsville an internationally-acclaimed birding paradise.

According to the American Birding Association, there are nearly 500 bird species, including the rare Aplomado Falcon, in the Valley. And, due to the profusion of wildflowers---more than 800 species---that attract nectar-feeding caterpillars, the North American Butterfly Association reports more than 300 butterfly species in the Valley.

After a storm

During the hot humid summers rainfall is rare here. After a storm when water is standing in the open fields you can see many water birds.

    I was just checking to see if I was possibly related to any of those birds from Port Brownsville! Actually, it does look like quite a birdwatcher's paradise. Nice job Kay!

    Good page. I'm only a casual bird watcher, but added several new species to my life list when we were in the Brownsville area.
