Joint Travis Audubon-Bexar Audubon Field Trip to Commons Ford

Birders from Austin to San Antonio: mark your calendars for this joint Travis and Bexar County Audubon field trip!

This trip will be on Wednesday, October 4 at 8 a.m. at Commons Ford Ranch Park, one of the best birding locations in Central Texas. With more than 274 bird species having been identified at the park, you’re sure to see a variety of feathered friends.

The park contains diverse habitats, including riparian, oak/juniper woodland, and a restored forty-acre prairie. We’ll be looking for year-round residents and migrants, so bring your binoculars and get ready to bird! Learn more about the prairie restoration project at Commons Ford Ranch Metropolitan Park here.
