Beginners’ Bird Walk: Big Webberville Park

8:00 AM – 10:00 AM

Webberville Park is located in eastern Travis County, approximately a 30 minute drive from Austin. The park borders on the Colorado River and features the flat, gentle terrain typical of the Blackland Prairies. It has plenty of large oak and pecan trees that attract Eastern Bluebirds and a variety of Woodpeckers. Bald Eagles nest nearby and are sometimes seen flying along the river. Kingfishers are also likely to be on the river. The open grassy areas attract Meadowlarks and a variety of Blackbirds. There should still be some winter visitors and we’ll also keep an eye out for early spring migrants.

The park is flat and has a paved road, but only one short, paved trail. Some of our birding will be on pavement and some will be walking through the grass.

Leaders: George Kerr, Lance Felber and other TAS leaders
