We’d like to take a moment to thank our local birders who came out this past weekend to help us locate, document, and confirm our Great Kiskadee at our Long Point Property in Richmond.

The weather was beautiful for our early morning Great Kiskadee Expedition and while the group was searching for a pair of Great Kiskadee, we were surprised by the sighting of a 3rd Great Kiskadee! This is a unique find for Fort Bend County as the Great Kiskadee are not commonly observed this far North in Texas. They are more predominant further South in the Rio Grande Valley and Central America. For more information on our Great Kiskadee sighting please visit the eBird checklist for our June 22nd expedition. 

We will be offering more birding opportunities starting this Fall! Please tune in to our website calendar periodically as bird hike dates are finalized. For other inquiries, please email our Charitable Activities Director at hannah@jbhfound.org.
