“Excellent birding, beautiful scenery, and the wonder of bats! What fun! Can hardly wait to go again!” - Rolla Wagner

We invite you to explore one of America’s best birding destinations on this top-rated Texas Hill Country Birding and Nature tour. Amidst the wide open landscape of the Edwards Plateau region, we explore the beautiful area surrounding Concan, Texas, and its mosaic of avian life.

We settle in at one delightful lodge, so it’s a one-stop, unpack, and just relax tour, giving us plenty of time to soak in the area and its array of species and habitats.

We explore with our guide Pat Lueders, an experienced leader who has done this tour two other times.
