Birding Festival

Add to your lifetime birding list in Junction, Texas.

Another “South Llano River Birding Festival” during April 24-26, 2020

The South Llano River State Park, along with Texas Tech University in Junction, is pleased to be working with the  Friends of South Llano River State Park to make possible a very special birding event in 2020.

The Festival will feature guided bird trips to the South Llano River State Park, birding habitats on the Texas Tech grounds, and local Junction hot spots. More than 250 species of birds have been observed at the Park, including sought-after species such as the federally endangered Golden-cheeked Warbler and the recently delisted Black-capped Vireo. Park Superintendent Scott Whitener says that “birding along the South Llano River is top notch and attracts visitors from all over the world.”   The Park has four well maintained bird blinds with water features that attract a wide variety of local and transient species.

South Llano River State Park isn't the only place you can birdwatch in Junction – many  of the guest cabins, campgrounds, RV parks, B and Bs and guest ranches in the Junction area are nature-oriented and offer many opportunities to add to your lifetime birding list. The abundant water and unspoiled habitat attract many species of birds throughout the year.

More information about the Festival will be forthcoming.  So, stay tuned and be ready to add to your lifetime birding list during the “South Llano River Birding Festival” in  2020.
