Saturday, September 22, 2018:  Field Trip CANCELED
Monument Hill & Kreische Brewery State Historic Site


Saturday, October 27, 2018: Smith Point Hawk Watch Tower

Smith Point on the eastern shore of Galveston Bay is a natural concentration point for southwardly moving raptors in fall migration. At the peak of fall migration, it’s not unusual to see thousands of Broad-winged Hawks, the most numerous species that migrates through Smith Point, on a single day. We will meet at the hawk watch tower at 8AM. Take 563 south to Eagle Ferry Road. Turn left on Eagle Ferry and then right on 562. 562 will dead end at the tower parking lot to your left.


Field Trip Guidelines

  • Participation

    Each trip will have a limited number of participants, normally 25, and participation will be on a first-come, first-served basis. There may be some field trips in which the number of participants will vary from the 25 stated above, depending on the logistics of the trip. A trip may be canceled if there are not enough participants.

  • Houston Audubon field trips are a benefit of membership. Each participant must be a Houston Audubon local member or be a guest of a Houston Audubon local member. An individual may be a guest on no more than two field trips during the birding season (September - May). Not a Houston Audubon member? Sign up now and then join us! To check on your membership status please contact membership@houstonaudubon.org.
