Thanks to the many of you who offered great suggestions for birding (and
eating and enjoying music) around Austin, TX. I was there for a conference,
but stayed the weekend to enjoy some birding and hiking in the area with
friends and family. In all, I got out for three mornings of birding, and
had a great time. We were fortunate to arrange a visit to The Nature
Conservancy's Barton Springs Preserve, to wander the famed Hornsby Bend, and
to hike Pedernales State Park for a day.
Golden-cheeked warbler (also saw and heard at Pedernales)
Scissor-tailed flycatcher (que pajaro!)
Little blue heron
Black-bellied whistling duck
Sora (great looks!)
Another golden-cheeked warbler
In all, we saw 70+ species, including 16 first-timers.
