Wild Weekday: Silverado Springs Park

8:00 AM – 11:00 AM

Come explore Silverado Springs Park in Cedar Park. This little gem of a park off the beaten path offers mixed habitat with the potential for some very nice birds.  The spring pool itself can host ducks, rails, herons, egret, and snipe.  The wet grassland surrounding the pool can harbor species like Swamp Sparrow, Common Yellowthroat, Sedge Wren, Marsh Wren, and even Le Contes Sparrow.  A wide variety of wintering songbirds can be found in the wooded areas of the park.  We will meet in the parking lot for Brushy Creek Lake Park in front of the rest rooms.  From there, it is about a 1/3rd mile walk on flat pavement to nearby Silverado Springs Park which does not have its own parking area.  Within Silverado Springs Park, there is 1 mile of paved trail that can be walked.  While we are Brushy Creek Lake Park, we can also scope the lake for waterbirds.

This trip will be led by Rich Kostecke. All birding levels welcome. Registration is required, and further details will be provided to registrants prior to the day of the trip.  Limited to 12 registrants.  Please contact Rich Kostecke (rkost73@yahoo.com) if you have any questions.
