The good folks at Bird Watcher's Digest (BWD) came up with great idea a couple years back. They wanted to offer intimate, weekend-long, small-group birding opportunities for their readers. Smart, right? Many of us attend birding festivals, where we are part of the hustle and bustle of field trips, workshops, and a whirlwind of talks and classes with birding experts. And that's all well and good--though sometimes we may feel overwhelmed with all the choices, and with all the crowds. Reader Rendezvous serves up something different--something utterly appealing.

Haven't birded in south Texas yet? You're in for a real treat--but more than that, you'll be astounded at the birds and other wildlife you'll experience there. And if you have been to the Rio Grande Valley, you know: it's worth going back, and often!
