Birdwatching is a major draw for the Del Rio area, especially in winter, when many species of birds migrate south and settle in Texas and Coahuila. The Del Rio Chamber of Commerce, in cooperation with the Texas Department of Parks and Wildlife, maintains a checklist of the birds in the vicinity; there is also a birdwatching tour once a month.
In addition, the city of Del Rio has an area set aside just for birdwatching. Named Laguna de Plata, this 70-acre plot of grassland and marsh is a favorite spot for waterfowl and wintering birds. Laguna de Plata is open daily from dawn to dusk.
