Experience a desert oasis for birds in the Texas Rio Grande Valley. Nestled along a 120-mile stretch of historic river road is a network of nine separate birding sites from Roma to South Padre Island that make up The World Birding Center. Habitats in this area range from coastal wetland and freshwater marshes to lush riverside thickets and dry shrub land, drawing almost 500 different species of birds to this major migration corridor.
Located at the convergence of two flyways, or migration paths, the Rio Grande Valley is home to many tropical bird species found nowhere else in the United States. There is also an abundance of northern species migrating north to avoid the cold winter or north to take advantage of the northern breeding, so this area gets a great variety of birds coming and going throughout the year. Popular species include a large selection of waterfowl that include swans, geese and ducks. You can also spot birds of prey like falcons, eagles, hawks and owls or delight in colorful parrots, sandpipers and roadrunners.
Surrounded by these nine building sites you’ll find Casa del Valle, Kenwood and Snow to Sun, premiere RV resorts that offer convenient access and prime locations that place you directly in the center of all the action. RVers can enjoy spacious full hookup sites with concrete patios available for outdoor entertaining. There are also gorgeous fully appointed one and two bedroom vacation rentals to choose from if you don’t have a rig or choose to leave it behind (Kenwood RV Resort offers only one bedroom rental units).
The close proximity of Casa del Valle, Kenwood and Snow to Sun to the network that forms The World Birding Center make these resorts ideal locations for avid birders. Bird enthusiasts can enjoy all the natural beauty, rich history, and culture that make the Rio Grande Valley such an appealing destination to visit.
All three resorts offer full amenity packages with activities to keep guests busy when they’re not searching for the latest specimen of bird currently on their radar. Take a refreshing swim at the heated pool or unwind after a day of bird watching in the relaxing spa – this amenity can be enjoyed rain or shine at Kenwood RV Resort, which offers an indoor swimming pool and spa complex.
These resorts also have a great variety of planned activities, including billiard and card game tournaments so guests can indulge in their competitive side. Outdoor activities like shuffleboard and horseshoes are also available to keep you active and busy during your stay.
You can come to the Rio Grande Valley for birding, but you’ll leave with so much more! Experience the people, amenities, culture and lifestyle that keep guests coming back to these resorts year after year and create new friendships and memories you can cherish for a life time.
