Overview

This tour is offered in partnership with High Lonesome Birdtours.

South Texas is a birder's paradise at any time of the year, but especially during late winter when the spectacular array of resident birds in south Texas are joined by an abundance of wintering shorebirds and waterfowl. This 9day tour begins and ends in Corpus Christi with a leisurely swing through the birding hot spots of the lower Rio Grande Valley.

Both Stephan and Claudia gave attention to my desire to get good photographs.

I would rate my experience on the Texas Coast trip with Stephan and Claudia as excellent. They are both superb at what they do.

Stephan & Claudia were so hardworking, friendly & fun! And I feel their personal efforts made a huge impact for our first ever RJ birding tour, a success.

Loved Stephan and Claudia! They were a great team and made the experience very pleasant and enjoyable. The sit down lunch on the last day was great! Pre-ordering lunch might help expedite the meal if needed for time. The Bat flight was worth the wait! Thank you! We look forward to birding with Rockjumper again.

This was a short trip, but we saw a great number of really good birds, rarely seen in the US or, in some case, elsewhere. Stephan is one of the best guides I’ve traveled with and he is also very patient and very accommodating. We had a fairly large group – 10 – but I believe everyone had a chance for good views of every bird. I am looking forward to traveling with Stephan again in the near future to Barrow
