Colorado River Refuge Birding Trip

7:00 AM – 1:30 PM

This is a four-hour birding hike along the river, up a creek, and back.  One-and-a-half miles each way, for a total of three miles. The trail is dirt, and the walking easy, except for a short climb up the slope of the river bank and back down on the return trip.

Habitat ranges from old growth riparian, to newer growth, and some open, mesic areas.

Target species are Bald Eagle, Pileated Woodpecker, Greater Roadrunner, and early spring migrants.

We will meet at 7:00 AM sharp to carpool to the refuge.  With luck, there will be port-a-potty, or two, about a half-mile before we get to the trail head, but no other facilities; therefore, we will stop in Bastrop on the way to the Refuge.  After the hike we will picnic next to the river.  Expect to arrive back in Austin at about 1:30.  Details will be provided to registrants.

Participation is free. Membership is encouraged, but not required.  Registration is required, and is limited to 15 participants.  Please consider contributing to, and/or participating in, Birdathon.
