Commons Ford Bird Walk

October 4, 2023 @ 8:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Joint Travis Audubon and Bexar Audubon field trip 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 is located at 614 N. Commons Ford Rd. in Austin. Sign up here.

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.

Trip details:

  • We will meet at the barn at the top of the main entrance road at 8 a.m. and will bird for approximately 3 hours.
  • Bring binoculars, comfortable footwear, water and snacks. There are restrooms and a porta-potty on site.
  • We will break into groups depending on the number of people who register.
  •  The field trip is free, but please consider a donation to either Audubon chapter to support their conservation work.
