In honor of our 50th anniversary, we’re hosting the first-ever Houston Bird Week! Equal parts fun, education, and celebration, see the important role Houston plays in the journeys of billions of migratory and urban-dwelling birds, first-hand. Led by Houston Audubon’s Young Professionals Advisory Council in collaboration with local conservation partners, we have a flock of fun planned for all.

Don’t miss our kickoff party, where we’ll be announcing our official Bird Beer. From downtown birding pop-up stations to park clean-ups and bioblitzes, help us continue to be a welcoming home for Houston’s birds. And speaking of Houston’s birds, cast your vote for Bird of Houston – we’ll share the winner at our closing ceremony!

Let’s get chirping on social media. Use #HoustonBirdWeek to share your excitement about the first-annual celebration.  


Vote for the Bird of Houston by August 23! 

Winner will be announced at our Kick-off/Bird Beer Launch Party on September 21. 


We'll be announcing an official Bird Beer in partnership with Bakfish Brewing Co! Stay tuned for more details.
