Fifteen curious birders rose early on Sunday morning, April 7th, to observe one of the best birding areas in San Marcos, Texas. Stephen Ramirez leads the monthly walks on the first Saturday of each month (this hike being an exception) through the natural areas or along the San Marcos River or Spring Lake.
An exciting find was the 10-inch rough green snake seen coursing through the small tree near the pond at the foot of the hill next to Lime Kiln road. The small snake provided photo opportunities for those with cameras.

The 2.6 mile walk lasted two-and-a-half hours and yielded 15 species of birds.
