EDINBURG, Texas (ValleyCentral) — The Edinburg World Birding Center is inviting the public to learn about a rare bird and their unique bond with humans.

The program is recommended “for adults and older, interested youth,” the release stated.

The fee for the program is as following:

  • Adults: $3
  • Children and seniors: $2
  • EWBC members: free
