The Loop


Birding hike yields something different

   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.

Stephen talks about the birds we might see.

The 2.6 mile walk lasted two-and-a-half hours and yielded 15 species of birds.
The list of birds seen included:
Great Egret
Solitary Sandpiper
Chimney Swift
Scissor-tailed Flycatcher
White-eyed Vireo
Ruby-crowned Kinglet
Chipping Sparrow
Clay-colored Sparrow
Northern Cardinal
Brown-headed Cowbird
White-winged Dove
Whistling Ducks
Yellow-rumped Warblers
