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.
River Walk Park
The River Walk winds and loops under bridges as two parallel sidewalks lined with restaurants and shops, connecting the major tourist draws. The River Walk has become a sanctuary for birds of all kinds.
Find American Robin, Woodpeckers, Doves, Yellow-crowned Night-Heron, Carolina Wren, Green Heron, Black-crested Titmouse, Carolina Chickadee, and a combination of riparian and open field birds.
Government Canyon is huge and has many trails of varying degrees of difficulty. Find Black-capped Vireo, Common Raven, Canyon Wren, Canyon Towhee, Scott's Oriole, Turkeys, and Roadrunners.
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.
