Attention junior birders! Bring out your field guides and wipe off your binocular lenses because the 2007 Great Birding Classics Roughwing Youth Competition is on its way!

Designed and organized by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, this birding tournament was created to help teach youth about birds, bird habitat, and conservation.

Every year, the Edinburg World Birding Center (EWBC) sponsors a team of five young birders to join the Edinburg Eagle Eyes. Participants range from 13 years old or younger and is open to both new and experienced birders.

Member of the Edinburg Eagle Eyes will compete with other local Roughwing teams as each group will tract and record as many bird species they can. The team that identifies the most birds (by either sight or sound) wins the competition! Rewards and recognition are offered at the end of the competition.

Tournament Day will be held on April 21, 2007 from
8:00a.m. –9:00p.m.

If you would like more information on this tournament, please feel free to call the EWBC at (956)381-9922 . Or if you are interested in learning about birds please join the EWBC Kid’s Birding Club held every other Saturday from 3:30p.m. to 5:30p.m.
