Migrating birds consider the Texas Hill Country a sort of freeway rest stop – a way station where they can relax, catch a good meal and gather strength for the rest of their journey. Nestled in the hill country is the 24,000-acre Balcones Canyonlands National Wildlife Refuge. It provides critical habitat for two endangered songbird migrants-the Black-capped Vireo and the Golden-cheeked Warbler! They not only stop to rest, they stop to nest.
The Balcones Songbird Festival is a celebration of nature through a collection of interpretive events to experience both birds and their habitat. Small group focus tours, with leaders of distinction that will provide you with a quality and fun-filled experience.
