Description: (weather permitting)
This 2-3mile hike may include a prairie tract, river overlook, riparian woodland and a visit to the grotto. Our guide will be looking for summer and year-round residents such as Red-shouldered Hawk, the four dove species found on the property, Yellow-billed Cuckoo, Golden-fronted and Ladder-backed Woodpeckers, Scissor-tailed and other flycatchers, White-eyed and Yellow-throated Vireo, Canyon Wren and maybe a Golden-cheeked Warbler, Rufuous-crowned Sparrow, Painted Bunting, Blue Grosbeak and Orchard Oriole. The diversity of habitat always offers an opportunity for a surprise (Acadian Flycatchers have been found by the creek in past years).
