Summary

The Lower Rio Grande Valley in south Texas is one of the largest migratory bird stopovers in North America and a major birding hotspot. Reservoir development allowed controlled flows of the lower Rio Grande River and subsequent agricultural expansion in the river valley, resulting in rapid population growth and habitat loss, causing significant declines in fish and wildlife populations. Gulf Coast Prairie Landscape Conservation Cooperative partners wish to restore habitat and self-sustaining migratory bird populations in the valley.

Purpose

Developing this science is a priority for the Gulf Coast Prairie Landscape Conservation Cooperative. The project involves restoring habitats along the Lower Rio Grande Valley in south Texas. Partners are studying the responses of different bird species, such as the Altamira oriole, green jay, and olive sparrow, to farmland revegetation in the valley.
