[Tweeters] Austin Texas Trip

I have birded several places around Austin over the years during family
visits. As Gary said, it will be hot for several weeks (currently over
100), so get out very early in the morning wherever you go. My top two
recommendations are Hornsby Bend and Commons Ford Park, and they are the
top two species-wise in Travis County. Roy Guerrero Metro Park is also
along the river close in town, or just an early morning walk along the
trail on the south side of the river in town near the bats. Balcones
Canyonlands is great, but chances will be remote to find Golden-cheeked
Warbler or Black-capped Vireo in late summer. McKinney Falls SP just south
of town is another possibility. If you want to go north to Williamson
County, you could try Lake Creek Trail-West or Berry Springs. I suspect
that Devine Lake and Granger Lake would too hot in August.
