Saturday 12/3 Bird Hike with Stephen Ramirez at Blanco Shoals

December 3rd: Blanco Shoals (Map: ) Meet at 7:30, park in the dirt round-about at the end of the road. This is definitely one of my favorite areas to explore in San Marcos, its a really large property, or it seems that way, because you can walk to every corner of it. There are always great birds so I invite you to come out and see what we can find. Even without the birds this is just a great place to be to enjoy being outside!

Here’s an excerpt from Stephen’s blog:

Spotted Towhee by Stephen Ramirez

November’s Monthly Bird Walk
…Gathering just after sunrise (I bet my guests were glad it was Saturday, not Sunday), the weather was still quite chilly, and there was also the conveniently placed “Bird walking trail” sign at the parking lot but has always seemed somewhat out of place until now. Overall it was mostly quite around the trails, I was listening for birds and could hear a very faint cry far away. I hinted that there were some Towhee’s about and that maybe we could find them. Sure enough, further down the trail we ran into the most exciting bird of the day, we were actually surrounded by 1 singing and 2 calling Spotted Towhees, and also witnessed them interacting with each other. It may have been a scandalous love triangle but it was hard to tell. More
