Roma Bluffs World Birding Center

Roma_512x219A thriving steamboat port of the past, today’s City of Roma is a birdwatcher’s paradise! 

Red-billed pigeons, ringed kingfishers, Couch’s kingbird, cave swallow, brown jays and Altamira orioles are some of the many species that attract birding enthusiasts to this area. As if the mid-19th century architecture and outstanding views of the Rio Grande weren’t enough, the biological richness of this area is breathtaking.

Situated at the westernmost end of the Valley, the Roma Bluffs World Birding Center provides information on wildlife-dependent recreation in the area, as well as natural history exhibits and a nature store.

It is located in the Roma Historic District and is owned by the City of Roma and operated by the Lower Rio Grande Valley National Wildlife Refuge. Stop by the World Birding Center to get the latest information on wildlife watching opportunities in Starr County.

Roma Bluffs has excellent opportunities for volunteers interested in helping greet visitors, conduct environmental education programs or coordinate special events.

Directions: The WBC is located in the historic district of downtown Roma, Texas at 610 North Portschellar Street. It is across from City Hall.
