Birding Walks Begin at Lake Arrowhead State Park

The Texas Ornithological Society (TOS) has started a campaign to help increase attendance at Texas State Parks by their Invade State Parks initiative. Basically, members of TOS host birding field trips and encourage other TOS members and the public to attend.

The first bird walk at Lake Arrowhead State Park is Saturday, March 10, beginning at 8:00 AM at the firewood shed (dump station). I will be leading the walk. I picked this area of the park because of the habitat. We should have good viewings of sparrows and water birds. The walk will be about an hour and encompass about a half mile. However, if there are enough people interested, I will be happy to continue birding with anyone interested for another hour or so in other areas of the park.

There is a $3 entry fee to the park, unless you have a Park Pass.

Good birding!
