UPDATE

The Museum of South Texas History regrets to inform you that the Birding the Border program on Sunday, January 17, 2010 has been cancelled. The program will be rescheduled as soon as author Nancy Millar is healthy and able. We appreciate your cooperation in this matter and thank you for your support.

The Museum of South Texas History’s Sunday Speaker Series presents Birding the Border with Nancy Millar and Ron Smith on Sunday, Jan. 17, from 2 to 4 p.m. Birding the Border: Tales from the Rio Grande Valley, edited by Millar and Smith, provides an intimate glimpse into the popular bird watching hobby as told by a variety of writers.

Birding the Border takes the reader on a wonderful trail ride of stories about the sub-tropical birds that call the Rio Grande Valley home. Nature lovers like former U.S. President Jimmy Carter, internationally known scientist and broadcaster John Acorn, and local birders Father Tom Pincelli, Roy Rodriguez, Marci Fuller, and Martin Hagne have contributed to this collection of beautiful stories.

Millar and Smith will elaborate on selecting and compiling the articles for Birding the Border, as well as birding in South Texas. Both editors will be on hand after the program to autograph copies of the book.

Birding the Border: Tales from the Rio Grande Valley is available for purchase in the Museum Store, with a special discount extended to FRIENDS of MOSTHistory.

The Sunday Speaker Series program is included with regular museum admission. FRIENDs of the Museum are admitted free as a benefit of FRIENDship. For more information on the program or becoming a FRIEND of the Museum, call 956-383-6911 or visit www.mosthistory.org.
