Birding Cow Creek Road by Bike
Join Shelia Hargis and Laurie Foss for our annual birding adventure by bicycle along Cow Creek Road, co-sponsored by Travis Audubon and Friends of Balcones Canyonlands NWR. Cow Creek Road is roughly seven miles of hilly pavement that runs along Cow Creek and past several Balcones Canyonlands National Wildlife Refuge tracts. The scenery is amazing and the birding is great. Birding the road by bike allows you to hear and see what’s happening around you much better than in a vehicle.
In June we expect to see and/or hear Yellow-billed Cuckoo, White-eyed Vireo, Western Scrub-Jay, Common Raven, Canyon Wren, Summer Tanager, Rufous-crowned Sparrow, Lark Sparrow, Painted Bunting, and other species. If we’re really lucky, we’ll hear Golden-cheeked Warblers. The trip is limited to 12 participants and reservations are required. If you’re interested, reserve your spot online at www.friendsofbalcones.org. After you register, you will receive more details on the trip. For further questions, contact Shelia Hargis at Shelia.email@example.com or 294-0272.
