Birding Festival

Apr 26, 2019 - Feb 28, 2019

South Llano River State Park to Hold Second Annual Birding Festival Submitted by South Llano River State Park JUNCTION – South Llano River State Park is excited to announce its Second Annual Birding Festival, sponsored by the Friends of the South Llano River State Park, the TTU Llano River Field Station, and the Llano River Watershed Alliance. The festival will be held Friday, April 26 through Sunday, April 28th, 2019. The Festival will feature last year’s popular events, the Golden-cheeked Warbler Walks, Birding the Riparian, guided photography sessions in the park’s four popular bird blinds, and the Big Sit!. This year’s Festival will also include two additional activities, Birding Around Town field trips and Birding Golf Cart Tours of the Llano River Field Station. The Big Sit! will again be held on Sunday morning. Last year over 50 species were identified at the Big Sit!, including an immature Bald Eagle and a Peregrine Falcon. More than 250 species of birds have been observed at the park, including sought-after species such as the Golden-cheeked Warbler, a federally endangered bird, and the Black-capped Vireo, which was just delisted from the ESA last year. Both birds nest in the park. During the Festival, guided walks will offer participants a chance at spotting new bird species for their lists, and ample “free time” between walks, tours, and presentations will provide visitors with a chance to enjoy the park’s popular bird blinds, each meticulously cared for by park volunteers and staff. “We hope that bringing a festival like this to the park and the city of Junction will highlight the area’s biodiversity,” says Park Superintendent Scott Whitener. “Birding along the South Llano River is top notch and attracts visitors from all over the world.” For more information about this event and how to register, please see the Festival’s Facebook page at, or email southllanoriverbirdingfestival@gmail.c
