~ Ladybird Johnson municipal park in Fredericksburg is a gem as well. The Hill country Master Naturalist just completed an ADA handicapped accessible nature trail that is awesome! The new bird blind on this easy trail will be a big hit as well as the butterfly garden. But my suggestion is to cross the river on the small bridge and walk the south trail. There is always something new along the berm island on this side. We are proud to donate WBU birdseed for this project as well! They can be found at or try the Fredericksburg Nature Center web site at



~Kerr Wildlife management area is a wonderful secret as well! It provides one of the finest Black Capped Vireo locations on the planet. It is an easy trip with helpful Texas parks and Wildlife staff on hand. This education facility offers so much it will be a favorite of yours as well!

~South Llano River State Park offers a fantastic fantastic opportunity just down the road. A very well kept series of bird blinds that have been maintained for many years provide a  great secret here in the Hill Country. This park is producing some incredible bird sightings due to the wonderful volunteer's that maintain the blinds. Please put this Park on your MUST visit list; it has become a favorite of ours as well!

~The Old Tunnel  in Fredricksburg is a must for bat enthusiasts! Great emergences and easy access starting in May!

~As is the Devils Sink-hole near Rock springs. This natural wonder turns out thousands of bats that some say can go on for hours.

~All these can be found at the Texas Parks and Wildlife site at then go to find a park.

~ If you want that little hidden "Gem" be sure to check out try the By the River RV park in Ingram. This jewel is a "Best Kept Secret" around here for bird watchers and nature lovers. The bird nerds from Cornell were here in April and saw 3 Golden Cheeked Warblers on the island. Just stop by the front and for 3 dollars you get on to some pristine private land that I know you will love. It is remote and quiet as well as very easy to get to. I suggest going to the very end and crossing to their 25 acre island for the best birdwatching. And the owners are very birder friendly! Check them out at
