Beginners’ Bird Walk: Commons Ford Metropolitan Park

8:30 AM – 10:30 AM

Come for a winter walk on the banks of the Colorado River, through 40 acres of restored native prairie that supports diverse wildlife and amazing grassland birds. During this season, several species of sparrows can be seen including LeConte’s, Lincoln’s and Song. Often, Great Horned Owls are seen in the old Pecan trees below the prairie. Hawks, ducks and occasionally kingfishers fly by over the river.

Restrooms available: 2 port-a-potty and 1 composting toilet. To get to the meeting spot, drive to the end of the road through the park.

Leaders: George Kerr and Judith Bailey
