Beginner’s Bird Walk: Riata Pond

8:00 AM – 10:00 AM

Come join us for a walk around a small pond and surrounding woods to look for herons, egrets, ducks, winter warblers, visiting sparrows and hawks. In addition to spotting birds, avian behavior and fun facts will be discussed. No restrooms will be available on site. George Kerr and Judith Bailey will be your leaders.

Parts of the walk are ADA compliant. Wheeling birders are welcomed!

The Beginners’ Bird Walk is held on the first Saturday of each month and is open to birders of all levels and ages. It’s free. It’s fun. Membership is not required. Registration is not required. Need binoculars? We’ve got loaners. The location is different each month. If the location for this month is not posted yet, check back later.


Riata Park is located at 12501 Riata Trace Parkway in NW Austin off Hwy 183, west of Mopac.
Take 183 to the Duval exit. If coming from the south, continue north on the service road, crossing Duval, for about 1 mile; then, turn right onto Riata Trace Pkwy. If coming from the north, go under 183 and follow above directions on service road. The pond is 0.9 miles ahead on right. Parking is immediately north of the pond. Turn right at the red “ARA” sign, park and look for birders with binoculars.
