Hip, Hip Horray for the Edinburg Eagle Eyes!

On April 21, 2007, members of the EWBC's Kid's Birding Club competed this years Texas Great Birding Classics' Roughwing Competition. Our team, "The Edinburg Eagle Eyes" had a wonderful time participating in this great event. We explored five fabulous birding sites, including the crystal covered shores of La Sal del Rey and the beautiful South Padre Island. At the end of the competition, our members Rebecca and Terry Sova, Katherine and Lauren Brough, and David Tovar successfully spotted and identified 67 bird species. Great job kids!

As team leader for the Edinburg Eagle Eyes, I want to send a heart-felt thank you to the City of Edinburg, Estero Llano Grande, and the Valley Nature Center for their generous support. Thank you guys!

For those of you interested in participating in next year's Roughwing Competition, please join us for our next Kid's Birding Club Meeting. Call EWBC at (956)381-9922 for future dates and time.
