2800 S. Bentsen Palm Dr., Rio Grande Valley State Park, Mission, TX 78572
This 760-acre park, lush with native plants such as cedar elms and anacua trees, attracts thousands of nesting and migrating bird species, making this one of the best birding sites in the U.S. Look out for “valley specialties”—tropical birds you won’t find elsewhere in the country—such as green jays and plain chachalacas.
