Bird Walk at St. Edwards Park

6:45 AM – 8:45 AM

Led by Terry Banks

St. Edwards Park is a small, 80-acre park off of Spicewood Springs Road.  It has trails through varied habitat – some of the park is wooded with typical Texas trees such as Live Oak, Juniper, Cedar Elm, and others.  Part of the park is open and grassy and in the spring is a good place in the city to find wildflowers.  Bull Creek runs through the park, and there is a small dam.  Creek levels vary depending on local rainfall.  This park borders a portion of the Balcones Canyonland Preserve, and from March to July the endangered Golden Cheeked Warbler can be found here.  Also, during the summer one can find birds such as Painted Buntings, Summer Tanagers, Red-Eyed and White-eyed Vireos, and others.  This park is good for sparrows in the winter.

Although not physically demanding, the trails are not recommended for persons with mobility challenges.  The trails are muddy and rocky, sometimes steep, and parking can be difficult.  There are no bathroom facilities in the park.

Registration is required, and the trip will be limited to 10 participants. Additional trip details and exact meeting location will be sent to participants prior to the walk.
