CBC Bonus Field Trips
Bonus Field Trips are open only to CBC members in good standing (i.e., your dues must be paid up). Would you like to go on a field trip but aren't a CBC member? It is perfectly OK to join the CBC at the same time you register for a field trip. Information on joining the CBC can be found on our membership page.
Upcoming Bonus Field Trips
Big Bend National Park May 6–13, 2017
The Carolina Bird Club is pleased to offer a trip to central and southwest Texas, including the Edwards Plateau, Davis Mountains State Park and Big Bend National Park. We'll be looking for many species of western birds and focusing on the few that can only be seen there.
Costa Rica—Sherry Lane—Feb 18–27, 2017
Note: This trip is full, with a substantial wait list.
This CBC bonus birding trip will take in some of the very best areas that Costa Rica has to offer. We will start out in the lush middle elevations on the Caribbean slope before descending to the diverse Caribbean lowlands for a 3 night stay in the lovely La Quinta Country Inn. Here we will take in several key birding areas including La Selva OTS, La Virgen del Socorro, a feeding station new Guapiles and the Old Butterfly garden. After the lowlands we will ascend to the middle elevations of the Caribbean slope near Tapanti National Park; one of the most beautiful areas in all of Costa Rica. And our final destination will take us to the highlands of Savegre, home to what many consider the most beautiful bird in the New World, the Resplendent Quetzal.
