The recently-opened Slaughter Creek Preserve Trail in Southwest Austin runs through a 100 acre beautifully restored savanna that is maintained by the Austin Wildland Conservation Division as part of its water quality protection land program (WQPL). It is typical Hill Country terrain and, in addition to varied habit for birding, we can expect to see some nice wildflowers. We will be looking for year-round birds, summer residents such as Painted Bunting, and spring migrants passing through. Our walk will be 3.5 miles along a well-established trail, with much of it out in the open. Be sure to wear a hat, bring sunscreen, water and a snack. Registration is required and is limited to 12 people. Contact Rick Taylor at firstname.lastname@example.org to register.
