Rio Grande Valley Birding Bed And Breakfast For Birdwatching Brilliance

By Devin Zuberg

Birders from around the world converge on Southern Texas to watch birds, butterflies and other animal species found in abundance there. This semi-tropical area near the border with Mexico provides a home to resident and migratory birds. You might be lucky enough to spot a Giant Swallowtail, Buff Bellied Hummingbird or an American Avocet. Choose a rio grande valley birding bed and breakfast to place yourself as close to a myriad of natural wonders as possible.

The town of Alamo locates guests within minutes of two airports including McAllen just fifteen minutes away and Harlingen slightly further. You will also be close to the Santa Ana Wildlife Refuge. Visit this spot to view almost four hundred species of birds visiting over two thousand acres.

For exceptionally convenient lodging, Casa Santa Ana Bed and Breakfast is right next to the Wildlife Refuge. The grounds of this bed and breakfast also include a hide for observing and photographing birds. Enjoy their butterfly gardens, a walk along their short trail and a dip in the pool from which to watch for yet more wildlife.

Casa Santa Ana gives visitors the option to enjoy privacy or meet other bird watchers. Eat out at a local restaurant or cook in the common room. This room features a kitchen, TV and laundry facilities. You can also take advantage of a breakfast spread featuring a number of baked goods, fruit, juice, tea and coffee.

The main building of Alamo Inn originates from 1919, a Land and Sugar Company building. Guests can arrange for adventure or even romantic visits at this location. The dining room makes food available twenty-four hours so that bird watchers can indulge their passion at any hour according to their own schedule. Callis Cottage has two bedrooms: consider this building for detached privacy, though the two main buildings feature en suite bathrooms. Stop in at the on-site store to purchase books about local birds and equipment such as scopes and binoculars.

About twenty miles west in Harlingen, visit Casa Rama. This accommodation locates guests in the Rio Grande Valley yet provides an international feel. The owners have accumulated items from around the world, along with antiques, creating worldly talking points. If you are interested in architecture take time over the building itself designed in a Mediterranean style including a pergola in the backyard, arched doorways and many carved scenes depicting life throughout the history of the valley.

Stay in one of five elegantly appointed rooms. This accommodation costs a bit more, but for your money you get a feather bed, private bath, satellite TV, and access to wireless internet. Take a dip in the pool when you are not looking for dragonflies or rare birds and flowers. Perhaps put a day aside to travel over the border to Mexico and explore the shopping and scenery there.
