Birding in Texas

San Antonio is the ideal location for birding. We have a variety of species that live or migrate through this amazing area. Roland is an avid birder and would be happy to recommend places to find specific species.

Mitchell Lake Audubon Center

The Audubon Center is famous for the shorebirds that can be seen on its mudflats. This is especially true in winter, spring, and fall migration when the habitat is one of the last critical stopover grounds before flying over the ocean.
