Pedernales Falls State Park - Part 1

We haven’t been doing much sightseeing since we’ve been going out to Medina on our days off so we decided to head out to Pedernales Falls State Park this morning. There are two really nice bird blinds where we sat for quite a while. Over 150 species of birds have been seen in the park. The endangered golden-cheeked warbler nests in the park, arriving in mid-March.

It seems like it’s been a while since we’ve been birding. Here are some of the birds we saw on this trip:

Spotted Towhee, Western Scrub-Jay

White-crowned Sparrow, Rufous-crowned Sparrow

Orange-crowned Warbler, Lesser Goldfinchs

Ladderback Woodpecker - Male and Female

Field Sparrow, Chipping Sparrow

House Finch, Carolina Chickadee

Black-crested Titmouse, Black Vulture

Carolina Wren
This isn't the end! Stay tuned for Pedernales Falls - Part 2
