20th Annual Balcones Songbird Festival
April 23 - April 26
The Texas Hill Country is a rest stop for migrating birdsÐa way station where they can relax, catch a good meal, and gather strength for the rest of their journey. Nestled in the hill country is the 24,000-acre Balcones Canyonlands National Wildlife Refuge that provides critical habitat for two endangered songbird migrantsÐthe Black-capped Vireo and the Golden-cheeked Warbler. They not only stop to rest, they stop to nest. The Balcones Songbird Festival is a celebration of nature through a collection of interpretive events to experience both bird species and their habitat. Experienced guides help you add to your life list. Contact: Friends@friendsofbalcones.org.
