World Shorebirds Day at Hornsby Bend with Travis and Bexar Audubon

7:30 AM – 10:30 AM

Celebrate World Shorebirds Day at Hornsby Bend, Austin’s premier birding site and excellent location to view long-distance shorebird migrants. Although peak shorebird migration will have passed, there may be some surprises that drop in. Past early-September records include Ruddy Turnstone, Black–bellied Plover and Red Knot.

This field trip is a partnership between Travis and Bexar Audubon. Meet fellow birders and explore new birding spots!

This trip is free, but limited to 12 spots per Audubon chapter. Bexar Audubon registrants are expected to carpool, if possible – more details will be emailed prior to the trip date. Please email Caley Zuzula, Travis Audubon Program Manager, at if you have questions.
