Registration required for this event. Register here!
In addition to registering, participants must submit this short COVID-19 form.

Join Dennis Palafox and Celeste Treadway for a morning of birding at Camp Mabry. Camp Mabry is the headquarters for the Texas Military Forces in west-central Austin. It is representative of the urban-wildland interface of west Austin with a mix of maintained areas, oak-juniper woods, and a wet-weather creek connecting two ponds. The habitat diversity and setting provide for often productive birding and general natural diversity. We’ll be looking for late fall migrants, early winter birds, and resident species. This trip will be lightly strenuous walking roads, grassy fields and trails. All birding levels are welcome. Dress for the weather, wear comfortable shoes, and bring water and snacks. There is a restroom on-site.

Registration is required, and we will be applying TAS Covid-19 protocols. The trip will be limited to 8 participants. All participants will be required to wear masks, maintain social distance, and refrain from sharing equipment with people outside their household. Please DO NOT attend if you have a fever, cough, any other symptoms of illness, or if you have had a known exposure to Covid-19 within the preceding two weeks. Please bring your own binoculars as we will not be able to provide any loaners. We will have two trip leaders who will each lead 4 participants. Further details will be provided to registrants prior to the date of the trip. Please contact dpala3711@gmail.com if you have any questions. More details (meeting location, entrance requirements at Camp Mabry, etc.) will be provided to registrants.
