For bird watchers, Laredo is Shangri La. It’s the only place in the U.S. “to have boasted four species of Kingfisher, the Ringed, Belted, Green and Amazon,” according to the Laredo Birding Festival. The area’s thick brush and nine nature trails lends itself to attracting hundreds of species. Popular public bird watching areas are Paseo del Indio Trail, Zacate Creek at Las Palmas Trail, Lake Casa Blanca, and North Central Park.
