BIG BEND NATIONAL PARK
Big Bend National Park encompasses more than 800,000 acres in southwest Texas. For more than 1,000 miles, the Rio Grande forms the international boundary between Mexico and the United States; Big Bend National Park administers approximately one-quarter of that boundary. Within the 118 twisting miles that also define the park's southern boundary, the river's southeasterly flow changes abruptly to the northeast and forms the "big bend" of the Rio Grande. Big Bend National Park has national significance as the largest protected area of Chihuahuan Desert topography and ecology in the United States, it needs to be on your "Bucket List!"
BIG BEND BIRDING TOURS
Big Bend's location, along a migration route, is ideal for bird diversity throughout the year. Northern species migrate here for the warm winter climate, while birds from the tropics range this far north to breed in the spring. One of Big Bend's highlights, the Colima Warbler, is found exclusively in the United States in the Chisos Mountains of Big Bend National Park.
