Birding at the Heard
The Heard has been awarded The Audubon Society’s designation as an important birding area. Texas has preeminence as a bird-watching area due to its placement on major migratory paths. However, The Heard offers special opportunities for bird-watching by providing a unique resource in a large metropolitan area.
Dedicated volunteers and hobbyists aid The Heard in participating in on-going scientific work in bird banding and annual bird counts.
Migratory bird banding, annual Christmas bird count, bird walks, bird photography, and a few more.
