The results are in and organizers of the 18th annual Great Texas Birding Classic have something to squawk about. The statewide birding tournament attracted a record-breaking 81 teams composed of more than 400 competitors who set an all-time record by recording 425 species of birds during the competition held from April 15 through May 15, according to tournament director Shelly Plante, Texas Parks and Wildlife Department nature tourism manager. Plante says the birding tournament raised enough money through registration fees and sponsorships to award $18,000 in conservation grants, bringing the 18-year total for all grants awarded throughout Texas to $819,500.
